Shakespeare and Asia / "Shakespeare and Asia brings together innovative scholars from Asia or with Asian connections to explore these matters of East-West and global contexts then and now. The collection ranges from interpretations of Shakespeare's plays and his relations with other authors like Marlowe and Dick. Exploring what Shakespeare has done to Asia along with what Asia has done with Shakespeare, this book demonstrates how Shakespeare helps articulate Asianess, unfolding Asia’s past, reflecting Asia’s present, and projecting Asia’s future. This is achieved by forgoing the myth of the Bard’s universality, bypassing the authenticity test. Special essay: New evidence on William Shakeshafte and Edmund Campion / Glyn Parry --Theme essays: Shakespeare and Asia --Imagining the East: Shakespeare's Asia / David Bevington --Alluding to Shakespeare in L'appartement, The king is alive, Wicker Park, A time to love, and University of laughs: digital film, Asianization, and the transnational. This collection also examines in Shakespeare the patriarchal prerogative and notion of violence; carnival and space in the comedies; the exotic and strange; and ecology. The book is rich, ranging and innovative and will contribute to Shakespeare studies, Shakespeare and media and film, Shakespeare and Asia and global Shakespeare.
