W. S. Gilbert (sans Sullivan) wrote a superior *Rosencrantz and Guildenstern*
long before Tom Stoppard.

Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0407  Qs: Shakespeare Parodies

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This message is directed at Michiko  Suematsu, regarding his recent query about
Shakespeare parodies.  Our indefatigable Hardy Cook is quite correct to
indicate the SHAKSPER Listserve Spinoff Bibliography.  Some other works that
might be of use are:

Cohn, Ruby. *Modern Shakespearean Offshoots*.  Princeton: Princeton University
Press, 1976.  A classic early statement.

McKernan, Luke and Olwen Terris, eds. *Walking Shadows:  Shakespeare in the
National Film and Television Archive*. London: British Film Institute
Publishing, 1994.  A remarkable book, listing many parodies and burlesques that
happen to be in the British Film Institute.

Michael Dobson also edited unit 22 of the *Shakespeariana* microfiche
collections, which is titled Adaptations and Acting Editions--distinctly worth
a look.

Finally, I urge you to be cautious in your use of the term "parody" as that
term tends to get sticky.

                Good luck!

                Regards,
                        Bradley Berens
                        Dept. of English
                        UC Berkeley

What do you have?  Do you want things like "The Abridged Shakespeare"?
