Description

While Shakespeare today is considered literature and is taught as a pure, high form of art, in his own day it was the quintessential masala entertainment he provided that attracted both the common people and the nobility. In Masala Shakespeare, Jonathan Gil Harris explores the profound resonances between Shakespeares craft and Indian cultural forms as well as their pervasive and enduring relationship in theatre and fi lm. Indeed, the book is a love letter to popular cinema and other Indian storytelling forms. It is also a love letter to an idea of India.
