Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1053 Shakespeare by the Sea

As an addendum to Brad Berens note about Shakespeare by the Sea in Los
Angeles, I should mention that almost the same url leads to an eponymous
festival in Halifax's Point Pleasant Park:
http://www.shakespearebythesea.ca

I shan't have a chance to see them, since I'm be in Vancouver at the
time (whose festival is at http://www.bardonthebeach.org ), then Kelowna
( http://www.bardonthebeach.org/vinyard ).  The Halifax festival is
playing Coriolanus and Merry Wives throughout the season, a special
production of MND on Canada Day at four in the morning (so much for the
actual middle of summer), and a run of Hamlet inside a Martello Tower.
Bard on the Beach is playing Merchant and Comedy of Errors on the
mainstage, with Pericles in the Douglas Campbell Studio Stage, and a
short run of a play called Shylock, about a Jewish actor defending the
role.  Bard in the Vinyard is producing MND throughout August.

Yours by the ocean,
Sean.

In response to Brad Berens's request, this is our local free Shakespeare
company (I've worked with them as dramaturg):

www.shakespeareinthepark.org

This summer's production is _Twelfth Night_, which opens July 4 and runs
through August 9 in parks in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and nearby suburbs.

Shakespeare and Other Authors on Film: Request for

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.1067  Tuesday, 3 June 2003

From:           Bob Evans <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

Subject:        Shakespeare and Other Authors on Film: Request for Help

Dear Colleagues,

At least once each academic year I receive a very detailed catalogue
listing all sorts of video versions of Shakespeare's plays as well as
films of most other great works of British and American literature.  I
suspect that many people on this list receive the same catalogue.
Unfortunately, I failed to save the last one I received, and now I am
having the dickens of a time (okay, pun intended) tracking down the
company.  It is NOT Films for the Humanities.  I have tried searching
for this information, using various search terms, on the web, but so far
I have had no luck. Can anyone tell me which company I am thinking of?
I recall that the latest catalogue offered a "buy-4-get-1-free" option,
if that rings any bells.

Many thanks -- Bob Evans

Missing Pages - Cornelius: Christopher Marlowe's Use

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.1068  Tuesday, 3 June 2003

From:           Thomas Larque <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

Subject:        Missing Pages - Cornelius: Christopher Marlowe's Use of the
Bible

I have borrowed "Christopher Marlowe's Use of the Bible" by R.M.
Cornelius from the University of London Library, but find that the copy
owned by the library has some major printing errors that have left a
number of double-page spreads completely blank.

Does anybody know whether these printing errors affected all copies of
the book, or just the one in the University of London library?

Is there anybody on SHAKSPER who might be willing and able to scan or
photocopy the missing pages from another (correctly printed) edition and
send them to me?  I would be very grateful for any such help.  Anybody
willing to assist should contact me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The missing pages are:  132-133, 136-137, 140-141, and 144-145.

Thanks for any help offered.

Thomas Larque.

This might not be fit for the list...

These questions might NOT be fit for the list.  I am only an amateur.

For decades, I have wondered about the following things, and have never
gotten a solid yet short explanation.

What is deconstruction?

What is existentialism?

What is natural law?

Can you point me to articles of less than, say, two thousand words or so
on existentialism, deconstruction, and natural law?

And I just bought Grebanier's book.
