mid-80's. My prep school seniors love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello,

The P&T/Beatles query solved,

A very clean old man writes:

Mention should be made of 2 other Shakespeare references with the
Beatles. A Hamlet crux line in  " A Hard Day's Night" and the background
(BBC3) recording in "Magical Mystery Tour "(Walrus). There may be more -
possibly an B Phil's worth - if you include the Peter Sellers stuff that
combines the two.

Goodbye,

Best wishes,
Graham Hall

Francis Bacon replies;

"Really" ...really? Maybe! Has an autograph paper been found?

Dear SHAKSPEReans:

I just came back from Dr. Robert Berman's lecture at the Shakespeare
Centre entitled "Shakespeare: A Warwickshire Lad -- or Partly a
Lancashire One?" (which I referred to in one of my old postings).
Everyone who is interested in the Lancastrian theories or Shakespeare
biography in general MUST read his essay once it is published.

To make his 1-hour lecture (very) short, Dr. Bearman convincingly
reinforced Douglas Hamer's 1970 work "Was William Shakespeare William
Shakeshafte?" by bringing in more archival evidence he had found. He
presented empirical evidence that there were a number of Shakeshaftes in
Lancashire, among whom were William Shakeshaftes. He also re-examined
the annuitants in Alexander Houghton's will and disclaimed Honigmann's
counter-argument to Hamer's work. (At the end of his lecture he briefly
added his analysis of John Shakespeare's "Spiritual Testament".)

If history repeats itself (as it has been said that it does) it is more
than likely that activist Lancastrians will hit back, as they have done
repeatedly in the past. What evidence will they present? Are there more
things in heaven and Lancashire than are dreamt in (y)our philosophy?
Only time will tell us...

Best wishes,
Takashi Kozuka

Comment:        SHK 12.2276 Globe Research Seminar in Early Modern Drama

I fear I am probably not qualified enough and not 'up and coming', but
what a fantastic idea, and all are to be really congratulated on such a
splendid initiative. Are cassettes / CD's ever likely to be made
commercially available? Will the texts used also be available for
commercial purchase from Globe Education?

Unless I missed it, I don't think the actual date(s) was on the recent
posting?
