SHAKSPERians with an interest in the Internet may wish to look at two pages
on our English Department server:
 
http://www.engl.uvic.ca/Faculty/MBHomePage/ISShakespeare/Index.html
 
gives access to a series of pages about a course on Shakespeare that I am
teaching this year as "Individual Studies" (no formal lectures but one
tutorial, and a whole lot of computer interaction, written, audio and video
materials).
 
http://www.engl.uvic.ca/Faculty/MBHomePage/SLT/index.html
 
provides some information about the CD ROM "Shakespeare's Life and Times" that
has recently been published.

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0622  Re: Bloom and *The Western Canon*
 
Hello all:
 
Shortly after the publication of *The Western Canon*, I caught Bloom on the NPR
talk show "Talk of the Nation". Poor Ray Suarez. Bloom had come to make
pronouncements, not to have dialogue and certainly not to entertain any
criticism of his work. I confess I became far more fascinated with Bloom
himself than with his thesis. Many callers were prompted to rage but I found
myself laughing aloud. Bloom was asserting that the study of great literature,
particularly Shakespeare, was the study of human experience and the important
lessons of life etc. Implied in his attitude was that HE, of course, was
practically alone in understanding what those great lessons were. At one point
a caller challenged him and his response was 'I dismiss that conclusion with
contempt!' While I am in general agreement with much of Bloom's reasoning, I
dismiss Bloom himself with contempt. He should reread *Coriolanus* and meditate
on the role of hubris in the fall.

Dear SHAKSPERians,
 
A travelling production of *Romeo and Juliet* will be shown in Portsmouth, NH
on Friday, October 20, 1995 at the Music Hall.  This production is billed as a
multi-racial production and stars Adrian Lester as Romeo and Lucy Whybrod as
Juliet.  Has anyone seen this travelling production?  I'm interested in having
my class see it, but need to know more about it, since it will cost my students
a pretty penny.  If you have information, especially if you can offer a pocket
review, please contact me.  Many thanks.
 
Cheers,
Douglas Lanier
