Abstract:This collective volume is interested in the relationship of Shakespeare to Africa in the early 21st century. At the core of the book are articles on four African Shakespeare productions in African languages for a London audience: The two gentlemen of Verona, in Shona (Zimbabwe), The Winter's Tale, in Yoruba (Nigeria), Venus and Adonis, combining six of South Africa's official languages, and Cymbeline, in Juba Arabic (South Sudan). Recurring issues in these contributions include questions of language, reception, understandings, Africanisation, patronage, translation and adaption, and choice of plays and companies. Other contributions look at Shakespeare performances made in and for Africa (Cape Verde and Mauritius). [ASC Leiden abstract]
