Bollywood Shakespeares uses the latest theories in postcolonialism, globalization, and post-nationalism to explore how world cinema and theater respond to Bollywood's representation of Shakespeare. The essays examine how Shakespeare has been reproduced and reimagined in a global context through the use of Bollywood imagery, conventions, and styles. This portrayal of Shakespeare is called "crosshatched Shakespeare" - where Shakespeare is both part of an elite Western tradition and a window into a new, vibrant post-national identity founded by a global consumer culture.
