9780231148498: Chinese Shakespeares: Two Centuries of Cultural Exchange (Global Chinese Culture)

For close to two hundred years, the ideas of Shakespeare have inspired incredible work in the literature, fiction, theater, and cinema of China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. From the novels of Lao She and Lin Shu to Lu Xun's search for a Chinese "Shakespeare," and from Feng Xiaogang's martial arts films to labor camp memoirs, Soviet-Chinese theater, Chinese opera in Europe, and silent film, Shakespeare has been put to work in unexpected places, yielding a rich trove of transnational imagery and paradoxical citations in popular and political culture.

Chinese Shakespeares is the first book to concentrate on both Shakespearean performance and Shakespeare's appearance in Sinophone culture and their ambiguous relationship to the postcolonial question. Substantiated by case studies of major cultural events and texts from the first Opium War in 1839 to our times, Chinese Shakespeares theorizes competing visions of "China" and "Shakespeare" in the global cultural marketplace and challenges the logic of fidelity-based criticism and the myth of cultural exclusivity. In her critique of the locality and ideological investments of authenticity in nationalism, modernity, Marxism, and personal identities, Huang reveals the truly transformative power of Chinese Shakespeares.

2011 ICAS Colleagues Choice Award

Honorable Mention—Joe A. Callaway Prize for the Best Book on Drama or Theatre

From the Back Cover :

"Alexander Huang brilliantly demonstrates the extent to which East Asia explores its fascination with Shakespeare in fiction, theater, opera, cinema, and popular culture, and conversely the extent to which the rest of the world has absorbed Chinese theatrical idioms and practices. What Walter Benjamin has called 'the aestheticization of politics' becomes here the focus of an absorbing and unforgettable account." -- David Bevington, Phyllis Fay Horton Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Chicago, author of Shakespeare: The Seven Ages of Human Experience
"Chinese Shakespeares is a theoretically sophisticated contribution to crosscultural adaptation studies, not to mention Shakespeare studies. It asks (and answers) the questions that do full justice to the complexity--historical, political, cultural, social, and aesthetic--of indigenizing Shakespeare in the multiple Chinese literary and performance cultures from the first Opium War to our own times." -- Linda Hutcheon, University Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Toronto, and author of A Theory of Adaptation

"Anyone interested in modern and contemporary China and its performance culture in global contexts must read this book. With insightful analysis of intercultural relationships and East-West comparative theater studies, this meticulous and thorough study breaks new ground in the understanding of Chinese performance culture." -- Xiaomei Chen, professor of Chinese literature, University of California, Davis, and author of Occidentalism and Acting the Right Part

"This book makes not only a groundbreaking but formative contribution to what is at this time a newly-emerging field of study in the English-speaking world. No one working in this field in the future will be able to proceed without seriously reckoning with all that Alexander C. Y. Huang has put into play." -- Tom Cartelli, Muhlenberg College, and coauthor of New Wave Shakespear on Screen

"Astonishing in breadth and depth, this study sets a new standard for the topic that is not likely to be equaled for decades. This is the book that so many of us have been waiting for, surpassing everything on the topic with its sustained theoretical reflection on the dynamics of intercultural appropriation, its depth of research into Chinese texts, and its command of both Shakespeare scholarship as well as the most recent criticism on intercultural performance." -- Timothy Billings, Middlebury College, and author of Glossing Shakespeare: Reading the Plays from the Bottom of the Page
