David L. Middleton perceptively notes:

>Isn't the screenwriter of "Shampoo" Robert Towne?

Yes.  I realized my error right after I sent the message.

Before everyone gets too concerned over Shampoo, can I say that I am
fairly sure that the production which the original posting was concerned
with was a BBC television 'Play of the Month' production. Unfortunately,
to the best of my knowledge, none of these productions are available on
commercial video and few indeed survive in the BBC's own archives.

Good Hunting Lisa

You are very right about the reference, especially on Marlowe.

From the very beginning of 5.1 the subject is poetry and the death of
poets.

The comparison between madmen, lover and poets is an introduction to the
substance of Theseus' speech which is a  beautiful homage to poets.

The Centaurs were expelled from Thessaly for becoming drunk at a wedding
feast and seriously insulting several women at the party.

The Thracian singer whom the Bacchanals tear at in their rage is the
poet Orpheus.

There is a French expression which loosely translated reads "Bacchus
wrecks more men than Neptune. (ie the ocean)  It could prove salutary to
list all the artist who have been killed in drunken brawls usually in
bars.

The muses must indeed have mourned for three sons of Thespis dying one
after another within two years.

There are probably more connections between Theseus, Thessaly and
Thespis than just the four letters with which they begin.  I would like
to know what you find when you return to your library.

Animated Versions of Shakespeare

To SHAKSPEReans-

Despite my best efforts to locate and buy the series of animated
Shakespeare plays, I've so far failed to find a source.  Contacted
Amazon.com after seeing the series described by the SHAKESPER group, but
they say the materials are OP.  I just got the new catalog from Poor
Yorick, saw their listings of 5 titles and called immediately. They too
say they no longer have the videos and that the series is OP.  And that
catalog is merely days old!

I'd like very much to buy the selections that make up both series, but
selected titles would be better than nothing.  If anyone knows a
publisher or video source that has anything in this series in stock,
please contact me on the SHAKSPER site or privately.  Remaindered or
used copies would also be acceptable.

Will appreciate any and all help.

Thanks.
