Subject: The Bard is Back?
According to a brief article in PARADE magazine, this year Shakespeare
is the #1 historical figure of greatest interest to users of the
Encyclopedia Britannica's Instant Research Service. This is the first
time Shakespeare has been #1. (Runners-up were JFK, Hitler, Mark
Twain, Dickens...) The article speculates that the film version of
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING may have something to do with it.
