Book Description:

Recent decades have witnessed diverse incarnations and bold sequences of 
Shakespeare on screen and stage. Hollywood films and a century of Asian 
readings of plays such as Hamlet and Macbeth are now conjoining in 
cyberspace, making a world of difference to how we experience 
Shakespeare. The result is a new creativity that finds expression in 
different cultural and virtual locations, including recent films and 
MMOGs (massively multiplayer online games).

Shakespeare in Hollywood, Asia and Cyberspace examines how ideas of Asia 
operate in Shakespeare performances and how Asian and Anglo-European 
forms of cultural production combine to transcend the mode of inquiry 
that focuses on fidelity. The Introduction and 22 papers in the volume 
examine how Shakespeare became a signifier against which Asian and 
Western cultures defined -- and continue to define -- themselves.
