Does anyone have a reaction to Rene Girard's _Theatre of Envy_?  An English
friend of mine wondered what Shakespeareans thought of it. You may reply
directly to me, Robert Burke, at

Subject:        Shakespeare CD-ROM & WWW
 
I'm preparing an article on the uses of interactive multimedia (both CD-ROM and
WWW) for research and teaching in North America.
 
Please send me pertinent information--titles, URLs, with comments on the
usefulness (or otherwise) of these resources in your research and teaching.
 
Full acknowledgements for information supplied will be made in the article, to
be published in a collection of articles on recent developments in Shakespeare
teaching and research, edited by Milla Riggio.
 
I'm aiming for a late October deadline.
 
Thank you.
Michael Mullin

Subject:        Shakespeare-based Comedy?
 
I'm currently assembling a review, entitled SILLY SHAKES, comprised of
Shakespeare-based comedy. I don't mean MIDSUMMER and SHREW; I mean other comedy
sketches based on Shakespeare's life and works.
 
I've already found:
 
The Coarse Actor ('Tis Pity She's the Merry Wife...)
Dogg's Hamlet/Cahoot's Macbeth
The Dark Lady of the Sonnets (G.B. Shaw)
Gertrude Talk Back (Margaret Atwood)
Shakespeare & His Agent (Rowan Atkinson)
The Shakesperean Actor's Hamlet Soliloquy in HUCK FINN
R&G are Dead
 
And I'm looking for more entries. Any suggestions, pointers or even texts,
e-mailed to me, would be most welcome (not to mention potentially produced!).
 
In particular, I'm looking for the complete text of the (believe it or not)
Benny Hill sketch from which a couple of SHAKSPERians quoted a couple of months
back. Shakespeare's editor talking to him on the phone, berating him for some
of the risque themes and character names he's using. Does anybody have this
full sketch?
 
Thanks, everyone.
