Adaptations of canonical texts have played an important role throughout the history of children's literature and have been seen as an active and vital contributing force in establishing a common ground for intercultural communication across generations and borders. This collection analyses different examples of adapting canonical texts in or for children's literature encompassing adaptations of English classics for children and young adult readers and intercultural adaptations of children's classics across Europe. The international contributors assess both historical and transcultural adaptation in relation to historically and regionally contingent concepts of childhood. By assessing how texts move across age-specific or national borders, they examine the traces of a common literary and cultural heritage in European children's literature.

THE COMPLETE TEXT WITH EXPLANATORY NOTES IN COMIC BOOK FORMAT Teachers the world over are despairing these days of how to get students interested in Shakespeare. In this increasingly visual age, dense lines of text in small print with many unfamiliar and archaic words and expressions are making it nearly impossible for Shakespeare's work to capture the imagination of a new generation of readers. But every student in Australia will have to study at least one of Shakespeare's plays during their secondary schooling, and many will have to write about a Shakespeare text for their final exams - avoiding it is not an option. Nor should it be: as the success of Baz Lurhman's adaptation of Romeo and Juliet shows, the right kind of approach can bring Shakespeare to life for students as never before. Acclaimed cartoonist David Messer has created a unique comic book format, which combines the visual impact of a play or film with the literary depth of a conventional text. The complete text is illustrated panel by panel, with clear explanatory notes provided beneath each panel to help the reader's understanding without interrupting the flow of the play. This format will also appeal to lovers of alternative comics, Manga and graphic novels, which are growing in popularity all the time. With the aim of producing two Shakespeare comics a year, and starting with Macbeth and The Tempest, Messer's approach has received unequivocal support from teachers and educational boards, and from desperate parents and students everywhere. The Shakespeare Revolution is here!

As the guest editor of the special section in this issue points out, Macbeth is one of the most frequently performed, edited, adapted, translated and appropriated plays, 'across distances temporal and topographical.' In both the global range of their writers and in the performances that are their concerns, the essays comprising the special section of The Shakespearean International Yearbook, Volume 13 demonstrate the play’s continuing appeal throughout the world and over time. This issue reveals with great subtlety and force the power of the play in the eyes of scholars and creative artists beyond the boundaries of the Anglo-American critical frame, focusing on the play as it is mediated through cultural and belief systems very different from those in which it is most often seen, read or studied. The volume also includes essays on Shakespeare and 'The King's Speech' and on recent books and digital databases in the field. The Shakespearean International Yearbook continues to provide an annual survey of important developments and topics of concern in contemporary Shakespeare studies across the world. Among the contributors to this volume are Shakespearean scholars from Hungary, India, Italy, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, the UK and the US.
