Subject:        Road Warrior - Danish version

I realize this topic may have been chewed on in the past, but I am new
to the forum.

Upon finishing Hamlet with my HS seniors, they chose the "Mel Gibson"
Hamlet over several others (Derek Jacobi, Olivier, Williamson) to watch
in class (for all the obvious wrong reasons).  What is the critical
opinion of this version as an interpretation of Hamlet?  The kids seem
to love it.

Subject:        The New Riverside and New Shakespeare

I hope this isn't old territory. I noticed the new Riverside in the =
bookstore and saw that they had included the Elegy *and* that they had =
included Edward III. Concerning the latter, I was curious by whom they =
were persuaded. Was it Eric Sams (thinking of his latest book) or does =
this decision go back to Muir and others. If it was Sams, I wonder now =
at the status of Edmund Ironside. Also, I had only time for a brief =
look, did they add anything else?

And on a related subject: Are the older King Lear and King John =
seriously being touted as Shakespeare's and if so, on what grounds or to
= whom and where should I look for material? If this is an old subject,
= send to me privately. I don't want to bore anyone.
