Subject: 13.1817 Ethan Hawke Hamlet
Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1817 Ethan Hawke Hamlet

I must say that exposing my six kids to Shax has been one of the great
pleasures of parenthood.  As for the ability of teens to appreciate his
work, no question this is something that can improve greatly over time
and with life experience, but I'm nonetheless constantly surprised by
the comments and insights my young 'uns bring to the table whenever the
topic is the bard, even when I don't entirely share their views, which
is often the case.

Case in point: my John (aged 19, a college sophomore) has just written
up his take on the Ethan Hawke Hamlet, and I've put it up on
bardolatry.  Can't say I was quite as thrilled about the movie as he
was, but I certainly share his enthusiasm for Kyle MacLachlan's
Claudius. I know John would enjoy hearing from listmembers about his
review, pro or con, if anyone cares to chew the fat with him on this
subject.  Here is the URL: http://www.bardolatry.com/hawkeham.htm John's
