Well, if I had directed that version of LLL, I know I would be thinking
about a different line of work.  Bricklaying, perhaps.

Comment:        SHK 12.0250 Is Kenneth quitting?

I haven't heard anything regarding Branagh's Shakespearean plans. I,
personally, would not miss his work in the least. I have expressed often
in the past my dislike for his work and my unhappiness at the mantle of
Olivier, Richardson, Gielgud, et al, being placed on his shoulders. They
are borrowed robes at best, that "Hang loose about him, like a giant's
robes / Upon a dwarfish thief."

Sorry for the vehemence,
Paul E. Doniger
