Comment:        SHK 14.1294 Re: Shakespeare and European Politics

"I say, for instance, that Julius Caesar could be rewritten as a modern
play with exactly the same individual conflicts and duplicities as the
original - not the same poetry, mind."

er... you mean "the same words"...? What is a Shakespeare play, if not
the poetry, the words on the page or in the actors' mouths?

"There is no European tradition for the centering of the individual..."

????? !!!!! ?????

You can buy Burckhardt cheaply, now, in the World's Classics series! He
might be worth a look!

Although perhaps Sam really would think that Michelangelo is just
"decorative arts" and "corporate".

It seems odd to think of the USA as essentially atomistic and
anti-corporate. It is a federation, after all. And its federal
constitution purports to be enacted by "We, the people of the United
States", and designed to form "a more perfect union".
