Like Jerry Bangham, I too was pleased to note that a BBC poll rated
William Shakespeare as Personality of the Millennium.

(Though the bloom was taken off the rose a bit when I was told that on
the same list of the most influential people was Baldric of Blackadder
fame.  <g>)

Comment:        Re: SHK 10.0026 Re: Shakespeare and Marlowe

I was curious as to whether any list members have been involved with or
seen productions of Marlowe's Massacre at Paris. I've never had the
opportunity, and wondered how often it is produced, and if rarely, why
that might be. (I have not read the play either, so it may be that it's
not especially amenable to production, although that seems unlikely
given Marlowe's other work). All comments appreciated.

I stand dully corrected.  Laxity of utterance is infelicitous in a
scholar at the best of times:  in the context of a debate not merely
presentist but precisionist, it verges on the inexcusable.  I can only
plead that, as a Donnean, I have been unconsciously infected by a critic
earlier even than Coleridge, and provoked to yoke by violence together
such heterogeneous opposites as Professors Hawkes and Wells.  Sure the
intellectual orb will be found crampt into a planisphere before they are
found together beneath the same ideological blanket.
