Shakespeare and East Asia identifies four themes that distinguish post-1950s East Asian interpretations of Shakespeare from works in other parts of the world. The book examines formalistic innovations in sound and spectacle in the films and productions of Japanese directors Akira Kurosawa and Yukio Ninagawa; uses of Shakespeare for remedial functions in Sinophone, Taiwanese, and Hong Kong films and productions; conflicting reception of South Korean filmsand touring productions to London and Edinburgh; and multilingualism in cinema and theatre of the diaspora in Singapore and the UK. The book is structured around modes in which one might encounter Asian-themedperformances of Shakespeare. Each chapter offers an approach to reading particular works.
In sum, this book is a major contribution to the understanding of the history and value of Shakespeare and East Asian theatre and film industry, and I recommend it to anyone interested in theatre and cinema studies. * Huimin Wang *
