Flame on O Mighty Hawkes, Flame On!
 
My not-so-sainted Irish former mother-in-law informed me once, dear Terry,
that "Sarcasm was the Devil's weapon."  How well you employ it, and with
such gusto.
 
I must say, however, that it somewhat tinges your sincerity.  By this I
mean no ad hominem, for as one Gael to another (we Irish and Welsh are
after all blood bonded by culture and genes) I delight in your effusions
almost as much as I disagree with your conclusions.
 
So to one and all, let's stir the pot again, and so to bed.
 
With deep affection for yourselves and an eyebrow raised for views expressed--

PS.  Want to put them on videotape?  I'll be in London the first week in
October filming for an exhibition on "Our Shakespeares:" Shakespeare Across
Cultures." I'd love to have a chance to record your views to be included in the
potpourri.  Or perhaps John or Alan or somebody else could speak for your
position. This is no put-on.  We're making a CD-ROM to go with the exhibition,
and I firmly believe that all views ought to be represented--in living color if
possible.   Give me a call at 217/356-0033 or email me at

O to be in the Arden, now that Autumn's here!
 
Cheers, mates,

Dear Terry Hawkes,
 
Much thanks for responding to my apolitical commentary, which is of course
covertly political, as we all know. There is much to say on the subject, which
I too hope we can continue to explore if I make it to Stratford in August.
 
Best wishes,
Ken Rothwell
