(p.183) Epilogue Hamlets without Hamlet
Hamlet's Arab Journey

Margaret Litvin

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter reveals a recent convergence between the political concerns of Anglo-American intellectuals and their Arab counterparts. For many Anglo-American intellectuals, recent events have thrust the Arab and Muslim worlds into focus, for better or worse, particularly in their experience of modern Arab politics: the feeling of being ruled rather than represented by one's own government. The chapter thus looks at the applications of political theatre today and how Hamlet is, once again, finding his way onto the modern Arab stage. Amid this discussion of Hamlet and twenty-first-century politics, the chapter also considers whether or not there will continue to be a distinct Arab Hamlet tradition.

Keywords:   Hamlet, political theatre, political agency, modern Arab politics, Arab Hamlet, twenty-first-century politics
