Content

Trans*textual Shakespeare: The Arabic and Persian Pre-texts of Romeo and Juliet stellt Romeo und Juliet (um 1595) in die Tradition der islamischen Philosophie des Sufismus und kontextualisiert sie als eine Form von „ Wissen in Bewegung“. Das Buch zeigt deutlich, wie sich die islamische Philosophie des Sufismus seit jeher mit der arabischen Geschichte von „Majnun Layla“ (8.Jahrhundert AD) bis zu Shakespeares Drama Romeo und Juliet bewegt hat. Die Philosophie des Sufismus prägte Shakespeares-Text. Diese These leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag dazu, rassistische und nationalistische Darstellungen des Islam zu unterwandern.
