Thursday, 17 October

Dear SHAKSPER,

With regard to the discussion of the BBC -TV Shakespeare series, watch for the
forthcoming Summer issue of THE SHAKESPEARE NEWSLETTER, which includes a
feature article on the BBC series by John Wilders.  Wilders served as literary
consultant to the BBC during the taping of the plays and also wrote brief
critical introductions to each play as it was published.  His introductions
have been published together as NEW PREFACES TO SHAKESPEARE (Oxford and New
York:  Blackwell, 1988).  More recently, Professor Wilders edited ANTONY &
CLEOPATRA for the new Arden Three series.

Regards,
John W. Mahon

Shouldn't we mention the brilliant Derek Jacobi Richard II among the triumphs
of the BBC series? Biggest disappointments for me were Falstaff in 1 Henry IV
and As You Like It. Also excellent: Henry VIII.
