Comment:	[Re: SHK 2.0106  Pedagogy: Sexism & *TS*]
 
This is a response to Roy Flannagan's comments on *the Shrew*.
It's great to have lively discussions about the issues the
play raises for us.   But I think that at the end of the day
one should make it clear that the value of the play does not
reside in its, or its author, agreeing with us.  Of course
Shakespeare held views that must be sexist from our perspective,
as anyone then must.  I think that even within the views possible
for his own time he was on the conservative side of these questions.
But, once again, if we valued the work of only those who agree
with our views, we wouldnt have to value much.
 
				Yours, Kay Stockholder

Re. John Cleese's *Shrew* -- did he direct it or act, and, if the latter,
as what part?!?  Or is this some other John Cleese?
