Laura Bohannan is an American anthropologist who goes to visit an African tribe called the Tiv. The Tiv spend a lot of time drinking and telling stories, which is aan artform in their culture. So she is nerveous about telling Hamlet to them, but they are very eager to hear one of her stories. The point is that the story of Hamlet looses its meaning when the listener feel differently about central points of the story. Like the Tiv think that it is ok that Claudius marries his brothers wife, an acceptable custom to them, but this is meant to understood as a wrong choice in order for the story to work.

Shakespeare in the Bush Introduces Anthropology

While she is there she hopes to prove that human nature is universal and the same everywhere and that the Tiv will understand and interpret the story of Hamlet in the same way that the people in her culture have. Before she goes she decides Hamlet is universally intelligible and that the story only has one world wide interpretation. While Bohannan is in Nigeria she is asked to tell the elders of the Tiv a story from her culture. This is when she realizes her opportunity to tell them about Hamlet and study their interpretation.
