Subject:        [Questions]

I have two rather trivial questions with which I hope some subscribers may be
able to help me.

First, I'd like to know whether academic work on and interest in Shakespeare
has increased or declined since the advent of theory, especially theory
concerned with displacing or eradicating the canon. Any ideas about where and
how to look for this information?

My second quest is to find Kenneth Branagh's pronouncements on what he was
trying to do in his screen adaptations of _Much Ado_ and _Henry V_.  Does
anyone know how commercially successful these films were/are?

Please respond privately to

  if the information is
unlikely to be of general interest.

Hello, all,

I have just returned to the list, so please forgive me if this has already come
up. I was wondering if anyone had seen and/or taped the new series of HBO
Shakespeare cartoons (AYLI, RIII, Othello, etc.). They were on in January and
February, and I am trying to get a look at them. I want to continue some work
that I did on the earlier series. If someone is willing to send me their tape,
I faithfully promise to return it ASAP. You can reply off the list, if you
like.
