The Banquet and Maqbool: A Review Cluster, edited by Alexander Huang for
Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation
Reviews of The Banquet (Ye Yan), a 2006 Chinese film adaptation of
Hamlet, and/or Maqbool (Macbeth, 2004), are invited. The films will be
screened at the 2008 annual meeting of the Shakespeare Association of
America in Dallas. Both films, with English subtitles, have been released
on DVD in the U.S.
The review cluster is an innovative, multimedia forum for performance
reviews. The journal encourages contributors to use the online format to
its best advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or
illustrate their essays with multimedia (screen captures, video clips,
etc.). The cluster editor and the journal's technical support team will be
happy to prepare clips from the two films to accompany the reviews.
To learn more about the review cluster, please refer to "Quinnopolis
vs. Hamlet: A Review Cluster" in Borrowers and Lenders 2. 1 (Spring/
Summer 2006): http://lachesis.english.uga.edu/cocoon/borrowers/21_index
Please send a brief email of interest or questions to Alex Huang
(acyhuang_at_psu.edu). Reviews of 500 to 3,000 words are due on 31 May 2008.
