I must say I find the controversy over the film "Shakespeare in Love"
amusing.  Some people seem to have trouble with the historical
inaccuracies in the film and with incidents such as Queen Elizabeth
showing up at a public theatre.  I call to your attention the historical
"accuracy" (or lack thereof) of Mr. Shakespeare himself.  Do Will's
historical mistakes bother any of you that are complaining about this
film?  As a comedy-fantasy, I was much more able to forgive the
liberties taken in "Shakespeare in Love" than with some of the complete
stupidities of say, Branagh's "Hamlet" film, where Old Hamlet takes his
daily nap out in the snowy orchard in the dead of winter, to name just
one imbecilic moment.

What's wrong with 'Shakespeare in Love' is that it rests on and fosters
two deeply corrupting presuppositions: that writers write most
powerfully about what they personally 'feel', and that art's primary
concern is to express the 'personality' of the artist. It will be
showered with Oscars.

Comment:        SHK 10.0392 Re: Shakespeare in Love

For all those of us who truly enjoy Shakespeare in Love,
Hyperion/Miramax has now released a beautifully-printed trade paper
screenplay with a list price of $10.95 US.  It includes the entire
screenplay, complete screen credits, and a few photographs.

It is a treasure for us fans.
