Subject: 	Shakespeare and (East) Asian Philosophy/Religion

Gentles:

I'm looking for materials relating Shakespeare-especially the 
comedies-to East Asian religions and philosophies.  I'm particularly 
interested in exploring the philosophical Taoist concept of yin and 
yang, but Zen, Shinto, Pure Land, Confucianism, etc., all might be 
relevant.  I'm less interested at the moment in Western Asia (e.g. 
Hindu), but if the study expands I might end up going there, as well.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Rick,
who is hoping find a research avenue, prepare for a production, and 
brush up for a course he hasn't taught in four years... all at once
