Subject:        Shakespeare as Character

The new film, "Looking for Richard" also features a cameo role for Shakespeare,
at beginning and at end, when he looks rather doubtful about what he has just
witnessed. I think that's a nice touch, a becoming modesty.

He also appears in the *Comedy of Errors* as performed (and videotaped) by the
Flying Karamazov Bothers at Lincoln Center a couple of years ago.  In this
version, Shakespeare is the prompter.

On another topic, Richard Knowles has an extensive discussion of language and
prose vs. verse in *AYL* in his New Variorum edition, published about 20 years
ago by MLA.
