Description

Alexa, Professor of English at George Washington University, talks to Anjna about her fascinating research and new book,  Shakespeare and East Asia (OUP, 2021). Covering everything from Romeo and Juliet in Singlish, to Japanese productions of King Lear, Alexa offers a crucial and much-needed insight into the political as well as cultural significance of Shakespeare across East Asia.  She also chooses a coveted delight from our collection, and makes a superb suggestion for a Singaporean addition to our archive.
