Okay honestly though, Shakesqueer (Madhavi Menon, ed.) is still the best book ever. Like, it has actual academic essays and some of them make excellent points but then I also can’t stop laughing while reading it. Here are some gems from the essay on Richard II by Judith Brown:
Lucy Liu - Lady Macbeth (Macbeth)
Angel Coulby - Cordelia (King Lear)
Freema Agyeman - Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing)
Astrid Berges-Frisbey - Miranda (The Tempest)
Ellen Page - Viola (Twelfth Night)
Mia Wasikowska - Ophelia (Hamlet)
Amandla Stenberg - Juliet (Romeo and Juliet)
Carey Mulligan - Desdemona (Othello)
