Special Lecture: Shakespeare around the world: the Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet between East and West

Monday 6th June 2016

Shakespeare around the world: the Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet between East and West

Tuesday 14th June

5.30pm

Blackfriars 

 

Yvette says: I examine two musical Egyptian films claiming to be based on Romeo and Juliet, Muhammad Karim’s Mamnu‘ al-Hubb (No Love Allowed, 1942) and Kamal Salim’s Shuhada’ al-Gharam (The Martyrs of Love, 1944), which seem to turn ancient feuds into modern combat of cultural clashes. I ask: Are these films concerned with Shakespeare or do they focus on local / regional socio-political issues? How might we compare them to Western Romeo and Juliet films of the same period? What, if anything, can they tell us about Shakespeare’s presence and reputation in the wider world?

All welcome.
