Shakespeare in the Bush

Bohannon, "Shakespeare in the Bush" -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

"You American," sid a friend, "often have difficulty with Shakespeare. He was, after all, a very English poet, and one can easily misinterpret the universe by misunderstanding the particular."

I like this quote. All throughout the text , the tribe was disagreeing and kind of arguing with what Bohannon said. As he tol d the story of Hamlet, they related how the Hamlet play went to their own culture. It was interesting to see what they thought about the play especially since it was written so long ago.
