Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1503 Shakespeare in Love

Hi, Marcia,

As someone who spent too much time having to teach basic library
research techniques when I was supposed to be teaching literature, I am
tempted to ask if you had tried your university library's various
bibliographical databases yet?  But I shall refrain.

I'm also vaguely curious about who "the regular people of the world" may
be.  A Shakespeare scholar can't be a regular person?  Gee, I feel left
out.

But, no matter.

Two minutes on the MLA index gave me these three citations, that may be
useful to you...the first by our own esteemed Richard Burt.

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1503 Shakespeare in Love

Marcia Eppich wondered about articles on Shakespeare in Love. A few
years ago, Richard Burt pointed out to me that he had written two
articles about the film:

"No Holes Bard: Homonormativity and the Gay and Lesbian Romance with
Romeo and Juliet," in Shakespeare Without Class: Transversal Territory
and the Misappropriation of Cultural Capital, eds. Don Hedrick and Bryan
Reynolds (New York: St. Martin's Press, 2000); and "Shakespeare in Love
and the End of the Shakespearean: Academic and Mass Culture
Constructions of Literary Authorship," in Shakespeare, Film, Fin de
Siecle, eds. Mark Burnett and Ramona Wray (London: Macmillan, 2000).
This in connection with my own review article entitled: "Shakespeare:
The Lover and the Poet," in Folio 6.1 (1999). Marcia, if you have any
problem locating the latter journal, published by the Shakespeare
Society of the Low Countries, please write to me off-list.

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1503 Shakespeare in Love

As others will no doubt inform you, the online magazine Salon had a very
interesting article about plagiarism and the movie, Shakespeare in
Love.  The URL is
http://www.salonmag.com/ent/feature/1999/02/05feature.html and it
explains how the novel No Bed for Bacon, by Carryl Brahms and S. J.
Simon may be the unacknowledged source for the screenplay. An extract
from the novel is also online at this URL:
http://www.commonreader.com/cgi-bin/rbox/ido.cgi/excerpts/0/0425-2ex.html

After reading the Salon essay, I checked out the novel and found it was
very similar. Much was said about this topic on the SHAKSPER Listserv
and it is possible to search for those postings, I believe.

Yes, and it is entertaining.  But it altogether cuts out or forgets what
I take it we shouldn't forget: there were literary (non-romantic)
sources for, e.g. Romeo and Juliet. The "entertainment" depends on the
fiction that the sources were not literary but
inspirational="Shakespeare in Love".

Shakespeare's way of dealing with, or even keelhauling, his literary
sources might better be regarded as "a great piece of work"?

Marcia Eppich writes,

'Shakespeare, himself, was a regular guy  . . . '

Come back, Sam Small. All is forgiven.
