Subject: Shakespeare and Popular Culture - Patrick's Comments.
The book I quoted this "neat fact" (thank you) from is a wonderful text on the
subject of literature for children. Possibly one good topic for continuing
discussion would be the interpretations for children of the works of
Shakespeareand their appropriateness or inappropriateness. I think this has
been brought up before on Shaksper, but as I am taking a children's lit.
course, it would be of interest to me to start it again. However, I am obliged
to relinguish this Shaksper account through this college (Medicine Hat College)
in the next few days so I cannot pariciparte in further discussions. Thank you
for your kind words and the poetry. (I don't recognize the passage and can't
look it up as my text is not with me.) I believe the illustrator of one recent
children's collection of Shakespeare stories is Keeping who also did the
Beowolf illustrations for Sutcliff. I don't know the source for the Henry V
pose Sendack uses in "Where the Wild Things Are". Salut! (Any children's
stories that a mother would recognize off hand?)
