This eighth volume of The Shakespearean International Yearbook presents a special section on 'European Shakespeares', proceeding from the claim that Shakespeare's literary craft was not just native English or British, but was filtered and fashioned through a Renaissance awareness that needs to be recognized as European, and that has had effects and afterlives across the Continent. Guest editors Ton Hoenselaars and Clara Calvo have constructed this section to highlight both how the spread of 'Shakespeare' throughout Europe has brought together the energies of a wide variety of European cultures across several centuries, and how the inclusion of Shakespeare in European culture has been not only a European but also a world affair. The Shakespearean International Yearbook continues to provide an annual survey of important issues and developments in contemporary Shakespeare studies. Contributors to this issue come from the US and the UK, Spain, Switzerland and South Africa, Canada, The Netherlands, India, Portugal, Greece, France, and Hungary. In addition to the section on European Shakespeares, this volume includes essays on the genre of romance, issues of character, and other topics.

Hamlet es una auténtica "tragedia de la venganza" que transcurre en el interior del alma de su protagonista, en forma de angustia, duda e indecisión. Y allí, en sus diálogos y soliloquios, aparecen las dimensiones de universalidad de la tragedia. Porque la tragedia de Hamlet es la tragedia de todos: en ella se dan cita cuestiones como el sentido de la vida, el hombre, la ética, el más allá. El resto —dice al final Shakespeare— "es silencio".

As the guest editor of the special section in this issue points out, Macbeth is one of the most frequently performed, edited, adapted, translated and appropriated plays, 'across distances temporal and topographical.' In both the global range of their writers and in the performances that are their concerns, the essays comprising the special section of The Shakespearean International Yearbook, Volume 13 demonstrate the play’s continuing appeal throughout the world and over time. This issue reveals with great subtlety and force the power of the play in the eyes of scholars and creative artists beyond the boundaries of the Anglo-American critical frame, focusing on the play as it is mediated through cultural and belief systems very different from those in which it is most often seen, read or studied. The volume also includes essays on Shakespeare and 'The King's Speech' and on recent books and digital databases in the field. The Shakespearean International Yearbook continues to provide an annual survey of important developments and topics of concern in contemporary Shakespeare studies across the world. Among the contributors to this volume are Shakespearean scholars from Hungary, India, Italy, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, the UK and the US.

This highly original new book by a leading Shakespeare expert and cultural critic argues controversially that the 'samurai Shakespeare' of the Japanese cinematic and theatrical masterpiece-makers Akira Kurosawa and Yukio Ninagawa represents the greatest achievement of Japanese Shakespeare reproduction. Holderness argues that 'samurai Shakespeare' is both consistent with our own western engagement with Japan, and true to the spirit of Japanese culture. / Shakespeare was an exact contemporary of Tokugawa Ieyasu. Yet when he was first imported into Japan, in the late 19th century and early 20th centuries, the plays were performed in contemporary dress, not in the conventional British historical styles, and received as the modern counterpart of Ibsen and Shaw, Gorky and Chekhov. / Today in Japan the Edo past is lovingly preserved, reproduced and displayed. Almost 30 million international tourists enter Japan each year to visit the old capitals of Kyoto and Nara, drawn by the magic of Edo castles, ancient temples, swords and samurai, geishas and sumo, maple leaves and cherry blossom. At the same time Japan represents itself as a society of ultra-modernity, free from the burdens of the past. This book examines why and how early Japanese Shakespeare was assimilated to the modernising and westernising tendencies of the Meiji regime, and kept well away from that very recent but dangerous feudal past of Edo Japan to which at least some of the plays should surely have been seen to belong. / When Shakespeare was finally integrated with the Edo past, it was to a contradictory mixture of acclaim and condemnation. In 1957 Akira Kurosawa released his great film Kumonosujo, known in the west as Throne of Blood, where the plot of Macbeth, without Shakespeare's language, is brilliantly relocated to feudal Japan, and which has been described variously as 'the most complete translation of Shakespeare into film' and as 'not really Shakespeare at all'. Kurosawa followed Kumonosujo much later in 1985 with his samurai version of King Lear, Ran. In the theatre Yukio Ninagawa staged in 1980 what is perhaps the greatest ever Japanese production of Shakespeare, his Macbeth set in mediaeval Japan. Ninagawa produced The Tempest in an equally traditional style, as 'A Rehearsal of a Noh Play on the Island of Sado' (the island to which Zeami, the great playwright of Noh, was exiled). Across a period of 30 years (1957-1987) these great theatre and cinema artists finally resolved the conflicts between Shakespeare and Japan by setting the plays back into their own beloved but disputed past. These 'Samurai Shakespeare' productions were initially received in the west and in Japan with enthusiasm, though not without some critical reflection on the dangers of 'exoticism' and 'orientalism.' / However, after this great florescence of 'samurai Shakespeare' (1957-1987), the theatre in Japan returned to its Shingeki roots, preferring modernity to tradition. The phenomenon of Edo Shakespeare became a definitive cultural moment, and many subsequent productions allude or pay homage to the work of Fukuda, Kurosawa and Ninagawa. However ultra-modern a Japanese Shakespeare production may be, it has had the facility to acknowledge the country's own past as one of Shakespeare's multiple global histories. At the same time 'Samurai Shakespeare' can be found alive and well in other Japanese media, especially Manga. / This is an important study of the complexity and contradictions of crucial cultural and historical moments in Japanese history, and in the relations between Japan and the West. / Contents: Introduction: Shakespeare and Japan / 1 'Show me a samurai' western admiration of Edo culture, 1890-1900. / 2 Modernity and tradition in Japanese theatre 1900-1957. / 3 Tsuneari Fukuda / 4 Akira Kurosawa / 5 Yukio Ninagawa / 6 'Samurai Shakespeare' in Japanese theatre 1980-2000. / 7 Conclusion: Manga Shakespeare. / Bibliography, Index.
