“I’ve been killed, but I’m not dead”: Remains of Hamlet in the French telefilm L’Embrumé

Abstract : This collection of essays reveals the overwhelming presence of {Hamlet} in the global Shakespearean screenscape. It offers a wide range of approaches to the play on screen worldwide. Many {Hamlet} films are haunted by the shadows of other films, as if the ghost of Hamlet were a paradigmatic figure mirroring how the cinematic reconstructions of the play operate. The articles acknowledge {Hamlet} as a repository of symbolic power and cultural authority while showing how Shakespeare’s western, northern, English-speaking “centre” is challenged or, at least, revisited through geographical dissemination. The adaptations, appropriations, spin offs, quotes and misquotes examined in the volume invite us to reflect upon what {Hamlet} signifies or engenders, and upon the way the play circulates and is received in our postmodern, contemporary culture.
