    Title: Introduction. Asian Shakespeares on Screen: Two Films in Perspective
    Author: Huang, Alexa
    Description: The introduction to this collection of multimedia essays on Maqbool and The Banquet argues that close examination of the films through a truly global array of appropriative strategies and cultural contexts can help combat the tendency to report on rather than analyze non-Western works and thus can also prevent Asian films from being seen as merely exotic and disconnected from Shakespeare scholarship. Especially valuable for Shakespeareans are the ways in which the two films refashion Hamlet, Gertrude, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, and other characters to shed new light on the visceral and political experiences enabled by these Shakespearean tragedies.

  3. 'It is the east': Shakespearean Tragedies in East Asia [Download]

    Title: 'It is the east': Shakespearean Tragedies in East Asia
    Author: Huang, Alexa
    Description: Shakespearean tragedies have played an important part in modern and contemporary East Asian engagements with Western cultures. Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Singaporean translations, rewritings, films, and theatre productions have three important shared characteristics, namely hybridization of genres, intra-regional and trans-historical allusions, and spirituality. These adaptations tend to present the plays in hybrid performative genres, sometimes turning tragedy into comedy or parody. These adaptations are also informed by intra-regional borrowing and allusions that matter to each separate cultural location and to East Asia as a whole. They tend to interpret Shakespearean tragedies through issues of spirituality and through the artists' personal, rather than national, identities, giving primacy to personal life stories and to the interaction with the audience, rather than attempting 'authentic' representations either of Shakespearean tragedy or indeed of 'Asia'.
