Besides Shakespeare's secure place in the literary canon, the plays and
characters of Shakespeare have constantly appeared as part of American
popular culture.  Papers are invited that explore how (and why) American
appropriations of Shakespeare have bridged high and popular culture in
fiction, advertising, music, theatre, film, television, etc.

Subject:        Eating in London

Those of you on this side of the "puddle" who are planning a trip to
London this summer may want to pick up a copy of the current May issue
of Bon Appetit magazine.  The whole issue is devoted to food in London:
restaurants, wine, beer, places to eat in department stores, cheese
stores, pubs, neighborhood restaurants, plus great recipes.  Happy
eating!

Just came across the following in my new release sheets:

Incidental music composed and conducted by Bernard Hermann.  The first
in the new "Plays and Poets" series.  The next released will include
Welles' Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night and Merchant of Venice and Paul
Robeson's great Othello.  (released on the Pearl label).

We'll have them in next week.
