Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0609  Re: Shakespeare and Politics Discussion
 
The immediate source for Terence Hawkes' reply to me (and Brian Vickers!) is
Hawkes' MEANING BY SHAKESPEARE, p. 45, and he cites THE READER'S ENCYCLOPEDIA
OF SHAKESPEARE, by Oscar Campbell and Edward Quinn - as well as Brockbank's
Arden edition, 84-86. Now, I haven't got to the library yet to check these
sources, but I'm interested in just what our occupying forces banned. For
instance, did they ban all complete editions of Shakespeare's plays, or simply
tear out the pages that contained CORIOLANUS?

I want to lodge a complaint. We started out (around the beginning of
Sept.) trying to discuss "Shakespeare's Politics". Later, the subject
heading drifted to "Shakespeare and Politics". Then "Shakespeare,
Politics, etc." Terry Hawkes then enters the scene talking about
somebody's non-existent Irish grandmother, Coriolanus and the Nazis,
Schweppes and Wildean sexuOh-culturOh poWerticks.
 
Terry asks "is this what <I> mean by specific?" Well no, actually.
Unless the scope of this discussion is so wide that it excludes
nothing.
