The dastangoi tradition of storytelling speaks of desire in much the same way as Shakespeare’s drama does. It travels to different places, dresses up men as women, explores non-normative desires, and does not conclude so much as stop. Putting dastangoi and Shakespeare in conversation with one another reveals ways in which we can think of desire as a universal, as something that universally refuses the borders of identity.

Keywords:   dastangoi, desire, queer theory, theatre, universalism
