Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0291 Qs: MV Film

I believe there is an unfinished film version done by Orson Welles, but
I may be wrong.  If I am correct, I saw excerpts in a program of
trailers and other clips from unfinished projects by Welles presented by
the Seattle Film Festival.  This would have been around 5 years ago.  =

Many thanks to Adrian Kiernander's remarks on Montrose's article [which
I've been unable to track down, so far; I persever].  I'm still
absorbing the remarks and don't yet know whether I agree or disagree.

However, a brief sally:  Kiernander says that of course an audience
would laugh at switching Oberon and Titania, since patriarchal comedy
will always ridicule a man who allows himself to be topped...

Hmm.  Oberon "allows," but Titania is "victimized."  Hmm.  That
patriarchal stuff is harder to escape than you might think. =


Or (and this just occurred to me) is that a feminist paradigm infecting
that language?  Either way... Hmmm. =

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0275  Re: Tony & Cleo

I agree.  While some parts may have been good, though I can't think of
which just now, its feeling was, overall, confused. The time period was
very confusing (Having Augustus C=E6sar sing a rap song ["Drink 'Til the
World Goes Round"] in seventeenth century dress is a good illustration
of that!!)

Your honour's all in duty,
Gabriel Z. Wasserman

Hi,  Read my chapter on Shakespeare in America and S. in the Schools in
His Exits and His Entrances: The Story of Shakespeare's Reputation. =

Lots of interesting material in the book on the pervasivenes of
Shakespear in the U.S. and everywhere.  When people went West, they
usually had two books, the Bible and Shakespeare.  One of my subscribers
to SNL gave me a set of two volumes of S which he said his grandfather
had in his cart which he pulled from Ohio to Utah.  A nice addition to
my collection of editions of S.  Louis Marder, 3/1/97, avon4@j;uno.com.

Dear Mark Rose and Anna Karvellas:  3//1/97  6PM - I am happy to hear
about the Norton editions and the CD-ROMs of the six plays.  =


To Mark:  I am sure that you have heard about the Shakespeare Data Bank
which I have been working on alone with some research assistants.  I
have a mass of information from hundreds of sources.  How are you
getting your data in?  Do you have a professional staff that is being
paid for their contributions?  I'd like to know as much as possible
about all the topics you have.  I decided to concentrate on Macbeth and
must have about 10 megabytes of data on every character, place name,
source, imagery,  over 600 questions and answers, - anything that has
appeared in print is grist for my mill.

There must be some way that we can help each other.  There should be a
story in the SNL about your work.  I am preparing a list of all
computerized programs and written an as yet unsent letter to all of us
to see if we can make a special platform so that users can go from ROM
to ROM until they find what they want - without exits one program and
then having to seek out others.  Interoperatibility is the key word.  We
can discuss this further when I hear from you.  Louis Marder: Contact me
at 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 .  Many thanks.

For Anna Kavellas:  You have read my remarks to Mark Rose.  I would like
to hear from you and certainly to have a review set of what you have
done so I can enter a very informative item in the Shakespeare Data Bank
- the eventual source for all data about anything.
