Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0516  Re: Wanamaker's Globe
 
With respect to John D., whom I have known for years from the International
Shakespeare Conferences sponsored by the University of Birmingham at the
Shakespeare Institute in S/A:
 
Whether or not the Globe restored rises on the South Bank or not, the
project holds obvious importance in the present British political scene,
especially the Labour-Tory or working class-merchant class conflict.  And
John D. stands firmly on the Labour side, to the far left.  Many theatre
artists and scholars do not take such a narrow and parochial view. Peggy
Ashcroft and others lay down in the dirt to prevent the bulldozing of the
site; the Wanamaker effort enjoys wide support around the world.
 
The Cut and the Southwark area around Waterloo station have long been an
eyesore--beset by an underclass of beggars and homeless alcoholics panhandling
for drinks or drugs.  If the Globe restored ameliorates this condition--and the
local council can earmark money to do so if it sees fit--so much the better.
 
Merely obstructing the building in the vain belief that it will harm the
indigent or the working poor is codswallop.  The sort of Labour cant that
discredited the party and kept Maggy the Great in office lo those many years.
 
Come on, John.  Give it a rest and get with the best.

Comment:        SHK 4.0505 Wanamaker's Globe
 
I wonder if in Stephen Miller's next communication from the Globe site he
might mention the 7 million pounds compensation which Southwark borough
council were ordered to pay to a property developer at an earlier stage in
the life of this project.  Also is he aware that two intending financial
contributors to the project in the USA have been prosecuted on charges of tax
evasion.
 
Or maybe he's so besotted with the idea of a Globe theatre on or near the
original site, that these small matters are of no concern to him. I'd like to
see a monument on the site to the seven (or was it eleven?) roadsweepers who
were so unceremoniously displaced from their depot to make way for the
unrestrained exercise of misplaced idealism to operate unchecked.
 
Perhaps in his spare time he might like to tutor the local populace in
matters such as typical Shrove-Tuesday festivities.  Even more, he might like
to participate in them himself. How direct does Mr. Miller want his
observation?
 
Best wishes
 
John Drakakis

To many of us here in the States, John Drakakis's interesting details
about the Globe project are not widely known.  I'd be interested in
hearing more about how the project is being received by both academics
and the general public in Great Britain.  *IS* worthwhile information
being recovered?  Are Britons generally receptive to the cost of
recovering/reproducing what is there?  Would the whole thing have been
better off left buried?
 
Personally, I admire Dr. Drakakis's vitriol, but I can't help but
think there must be *something* to be learned from recovering the
thing itself.

Considering the number of high-rise office buildings being built in the area,
it strikes me as highly unlikely that the dustmen's lot would have remained
inviolate even without the theatre project.
 
It also seems likely that the local economy will benefit from the influx of
tourists into the neighborhood.

Shakespeare via gopher

For those of you on this list with full access to internet
via a gopher utility there is a complete works of Shakespeare
available via menus.
 
Make sure that your gopher server that you get online with is
 
Gopher2.tc.umn.edu
 
Chose option 6 - libraries
(Arrow keys work)
 
Next Menu:
Chose option 1 - Electronic Books
 
Next Menu:
Chose option 3 - By title
 
Next Menu:
Chose option 9 - Complete Works of Shakespere
 
You then can chose which style of play you want.
eg. comedy, tragedy, history etc
 
From there you can chose which play
 
Then you can chose which ACT you want to access.
 
If you want to save the file, what you can do is select ACT 1
then quit at the first more prompt, chose the 's' option and
enter the file name you want to use to save the act under. Be
warned, my gopher utility doesn't append so use different names
for each act.
 
Enjoy!
