Subject:        World Shakespeare Bibliography Desiderata List #2

This is the second list of books and articles from the World Shakespeare
Bibliography desiderata list
<http://www-english.tamu.edu/wsb/need.html>.  These are publications
that we have citations for but cannot obtain for one reason or another.
Since these citations come from a wide range of sources, there will be
errors in them; some are incorrect citations (or so reports the
university's interlibrary loan office). I'm hoping that fellow
SHAKSPERians might have one or more of these in their files and will
loan them long enough for me to prepare an entry for the WSB. If you do
have a copy--or know where one might be had--please contact me off list

Critics Who Hate Adaptations?

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 13.1041  Monday, 15 April 2002

Subject:        Critics Who Hate Adaptations?

I've been asked a question, via my website, that perhaps SHAKSPEReans
will be able to help with.

Can anybody give me the names of one or more "living Shakespeare
scholar[s] of a conservative nature, ... not totally in favour of
adapting Shakespeare's work"?  I have a feeling that a number of such
critics have made themselves known in relevant SHAKSPER discussions, but
can't find any relevant posts in the archives (too many responses to any
possible keywords that I can think of).  Does anybody know of any
relevant names, including perhaps their own?

Thanks for any help that you can offer.

Thomas Larque.

Looking back over the following:

I really should have waited to find the material itself. Well, here it
is, from "The Ant and the Nightingale":

Then after dinner he must venture beyond sea, that is, in a choice pain
of nobelmen's oars, to the Bankside, where he must sit out the
breaking-up of a comedy, or the first cut of a tragedy, or rather, if
his humour so serve him, to call in at the Blackfriars . . .

Maybe more helpful than my initial response.

OK I'll bite

Does anyone believe that Mr Gibson understood or knew the meanings of
the words he spoke?

At least you can spell Gibson

PS: Had my infacrction a third of a century ago.  Does that count??

Accessing SHAKSPER

"The link that doesn't work for me, however, is the one to SHAKSPER. My
browser returns a 404 every time I've tried it. Is it there yet?"

Somehow I am a little comforted to learn that I am not the only one that
cannot access the SHAKSPER site.  It fails every time for me, too.

I notice from Nancy's email address that she is an attbi user as I am.
I tried working with ATT on this but they simply say that they are not
responsible for third party websites.  I do know that at least one other
attbi user has no problems with the site: Eric Luhrs, webmaster of the
site, who also uses attbi and has no problems.

So, Nancy, I guess that you and I have been chosen by the Internet Gods
for their special punishment.

Jim Slager

SHAKSPER web site at www.shaksper.net please use Save As and save an
HTML copy of the web page with the error notice and e-mail that to me at

error is. It is true that I my commercial DSL provider is ATT; however,
the site is mounted on a SUN workstation with its own IP address and
primary name server. -Hardy]
