Subject:        Pop Culture Uses Question

Hi SHAKSPERians,

I have a (undergrad) student who's interested in working on the uses of
Shakespeare in Sandman, a graphic novel series.  I've seen lots of
references recently to Shakespeare in popular culture, but would really
like help in steering this student to some theoretical thinking about
what it means to use Shakespeare in works such as Sandman.  (Confession
up front:  I know nothing about Sandman, though my student has promised
to lend me a volume or two so I can get an idea of what he's after).

Thanks in advance for your help,
Jan Stirm

[Editor's Note: There have been past discussion on SHAKSPER regarding
the Sandman series to which I contributed. They can be located with the
SEARCH command. I envy your student. The series is a rich trove of
Shakespearean treasures ready to be mined. I only wish that I had the
time to do it myself. --Hardy]
