In _Shakespearean Film/Shakespearean Directors_, Peter Donaldson has an
excellent chapter on issues of gender and sex in Zeffirelli's Romeo and
Juliet.

David P. McKay, thank you for your quotation of material from Sedgewick
but you credit me with observations of the Luhrman's film that I did not
make.  You say you "disagree with Gilmore that in Luhrman's..."  This is
not good argumentation.  I am simply trying to understand what Dietz is
saying; I would not characterize Luhrman's film as doing any of the
things Dietz  suggests.  Please direct your response to what I said.  I
do not agree with Dietz's comments; yet my QUESTION  is whether her
definition and use of this expression, "to queer," is useful and valid.

Thank,
cg.
