Subject:        Shakespeare and Popular Culture

Could somebody please give me information on/examples of how Shakespeare has
been absorbed into the popular culture of today? I am specifically looking fo
ways in which references to Shakespeare are used in advertisements and so
forth.

As an instructor at a community collge, I often find that students are
intimidated by the thought of having to study "the Bard", and I would like to
put them at ease by making them aware of how Shakespeare's reputation has
permeated _popular_ culture.

 Thank you!

Subject:        Capell, Poel Questions

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know of a good source for biographical information on Edward
Capell, the 18th century editor?  I've checked the Library of Congress via
telnet and couldn't find any biographies.  Does the Dictionary of National
Biography go back that far?

Also, does anyone know where the William Poel promptbooks are?  I imagine
they're in England somewhere, but would like to know which library if possible.

Yours,
Wes Folkerth
