Subject:        Shakespeare Film Class

I'm seeking some suggestions for a class I'll be teaching during our
January term.  I've titled the course "Shakespeare: The Movie"
(shamelessly stolen from Lynda Boose and Richard Burt's book of the same
title).  My intent during the 16 3-hour class meetings is view and
discuss as many films based (however loosely) on Shakespeare's work.

If anyone has taught a similar course, I'd appreciate hearing
suggestions.  Best films to show, approaches to teaching, writing
assignments, readings...

Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0500  Qs: Related to Cavendish

James Maurice wonders about the following item in *Cavendish*:  "Another
character reports as gossip: 'And I do heare the Camells decay at
Tiballs.'  Was Tiball's a zoo?"  The reference may be to Theobalds, the
great country house built by Lord Burghley, enlarged by his son Thomas
Cecil, and subsequently torn down.  I don't have Mark Girouard's *Life
in the English Country House* ready to hand, but the presence of camels
there is the sort of tidbit he retails, and if it's not in the book he
would be likely to know about it.
