Subject:        Shakespeare and Media Violence Connection

I am interested in writing an article or essay in my free time this
summer comparing the fire that Shakespeare's plays drew in his day
concerning violence and lewdness on stage with the same fire that the
media (television and movies) draws these days for excessive violence
and sexuality.  Can anyone direct me to sources that have such responses
to Shakespeare?  Are there such sources?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jason N. Mical
