My favorite lines:

Bacon: It's Bacon, with eggs! [Throws them in Shakespeare's face.]

Shakespeare: You'll fry for this, Bacon!

I wanted to thank Richard Nathan for his kind words about my novel "The
Players: a novel of the young Shakespeare." I am hoping Norton will
re-release it now. For those of you who are interested, it's available
through Amazon.com and most other online sellers. My other novel with
Shakespeare as major character "Nicholas Cooke" is out of print, but a
lot of copies are available through http://www.bibliofind.com

Now, to revise my opinion on Ben Afflect. His hot shot, wise guy, no
time for anybody portrayal was probably more Elizabethan than a lot of
the other actors...it was his Americanism which seemed to stick out in
such an English cast. Actually when I see young guys around New York
jiving to headsets, I feel, "Now there's the Elizabethan energy.."
Fiennes I did not find cold, but highly romantic.

What a great thing is the web where one can "print" an opinion on
Tuesday and amend it on Wednesday. By the way, I saw the film in preview
in September and honorably did not breathe a word about it to the list
until it was released, though it took much moral stamina!
