Shakespeare in Charge

"Neither a borrower nor a lender be" is no way to make money today, but
Britain's Cranfield University School of Management still finds
Shakespeare a source of lessons on business. The school has joined
forces with the illustrious Globe Theatre to offer seminars in
Shakespeare for today's corporate execs. The two-day classes, which cost

Subject:        Shakespeare as Character

I have been studying this list's collection of
stories/novels/plays/movies etc. wherein Shakespeare appears, and I
don't think anyone has mentioned two of my favorites:

1) The novella "No Great Magic," by Fritz Leiber, who was himself raised
by a Shakespearean actor and trained as one.  It is part of his series
about time travel called, loosely, the "Change War" stories, and is a
sequel to his acclaimed novel "The Big Time."  It features a
time-traveling group of actors who end up playing "Macbeth" before
Shakespeare and Elizabeth.

2)  The novel "Tam Lin" by Pamela Dean.  This one is a gem.  It is part
of the "Modern Fairy Tale Series" where old fairy tales are retold by
modern authors;  no time travel in this one, but several Shakespearean
actors (including Robin Armin) wind up at a small liberal-arts college
in Minnesota in the 1970s.  It is also about true love, learning,
universities, and what a liberal arts education really equips you for,
and is the only novel I have seen so far about what reading Euripides
and Chaucer and Milton & Co. really ~feels~ like when you are a college
freshman.  Shakespeare does not appear himself but is always off-stage,
as it were....It is a bit like Robertson Davies, but even better.

Obscure Elizabethan Pamphleteers

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 10.0644  Thursday, 8 April 1999.

Subject:        Obscure Elizabethan Pamphleteers

Greetings, all.

Well, here's a question.  And, as a long standing list member, you all
have my assurance that I am turning to the group only after having
fruitlessly ransacked all other resources immediately available.

I am in the throes of completing my doctoral thesis (after seven years,
two failed marriages, the fall of empires etc etc etc), and I am chasing
up the little bits of glue that hold the whole thing together.  What I
am looking for is a little information - essentially biographical
details, background - on two pamphleteers, Geffrey Gates, author of
'Defence of the Military Profession (1579), and William Blandy, who
penned a response of sorts, commonly called 'The Castle of Commonwealth'
(1581).  Bibliographic details of any book which might mention them (I
am not optimistic about this) would also be appreciated.  Please direct
any information to me at <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>.
