Several years ago (five? even ten?) British Airways ran a TV commercial in
which all the text came from Gaunt's "sceptered isle" speech. The images were
standard Elizabeth's magic kingdom stuff (Beefeaters, Tower of London, Houses
of Parliament, thatched-roof cottages, rolling green swards). Over them a plumy
voice recited a jumble of lines from R2. Shakespeare got no credit as the copy
writer.

On Shakespeare and Popular Culture, I'd suggest Harriet Hawkins book on the
subject.  I'm afraid I don't have the exact title, but it's similar to the
stated subject.  Harriet lectured from it in class at Oxford that I took last
year and I intended to buy it and have her sign it.  I procrastinated and to my
sorrow, Harriet died just a few months later. Pat Dunlay
