Well, in my previous post, I talked about searching for a book for my professor in Taipei, Taiwan. Unfortunately, about half way through my trip, I received an email from him stating that the book had been sent to him in the mail by the company that produced it, and he asked that my search be called off.
While I now didn’t have to look for a specific book for him, I still opted to search for Shakespeare in Taiwan and had fun while doing it.
While in Taipei, I stopped into the Eslite Bookstore, the largest bookstore in Taipei, found the British Lit section and proceeded to search for Shakespeare. I found an entire shelf of Shakespeare, mostly in Chinese, and plopped down in front of the bookshelf and proceeded to go through EVERY copy of EVERY Shakespeare play they had in the place.
I ended up buying four books, and I will share each of them with you below.
