We will have a discography of Shakespeare's work, and with this book the interested person is led to film. Yes, it gives some detail with the impact of Shakespeare, but it does not indicate whether phonorecordings were done regarding Shakespeare.

This is a really great book that is really informative. I had not considered until now how Shakespeare's reception in Asia and on the net, so that was great. My favorite article was Richard Burt's. It is hilarious the way he exposes the US cultural imperialism inherent in this supposedly bi-cultural production of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream that is staged in Viet Nam. I like the way he exposes the embarrassing and ridiculous bullying behavior of Professor Browning who thinks she can lord it over the Vietnamese and patronize them and that she is always right. Only someone ridiculous would say to the Vietnamese director of the movie that "Shakespeare is a better director" than he is. The way she and some of the other Americans of that production behaved almost made me embarrassed to be an American. I would recommend this book to any scholar and student interested in Shakespeare and his reception and adaptation on the net and in Asia.
