"As I am obsessed with author's motives and being a Bloomian Bardolator
in denial and shaken by recent allegations in the news against dear pure
Harold"

Could somebody please elaborate?

Another vote for the excellence of Brian Gibbons' M for M.  I haven't
read Bawcutt's.

Rome & Jewels

Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0535 Rome & Jewels

"Rome and Jewels" was presented here in Philadelphia at our Fringe
Festival. I unfortunately didn't get to see it, but a review I read was
very positive. It does not follow the plot of R&J at all, but instead
focuses on Rome(o). If I recall correctly (I may not) all the parts are
played by young men.

Journals, Old and Electronic

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.0548  Thursday, 26 February 2004

Subject:        Journals, Old and Electronic

Thanks to those who responded to my posting offering old journals.

A side note is that electronic versions may differ from hard copies in
many ways. I recently compared two versions of an article on _Edward II_
in _Studies in English Literature_ (1999). Most annoying, the electronic
version prints a long passage of verse as prose. No italic type is used,
so one must read carefully to determine if a sentence refers to the
title character or the play. Capitalization in the titles varies; there
is no indentation of paragraphs or quotations. At one point, "Edward II"
becomes "Edward H"--no doubt a scanner failure.

Hamlet on Film Query

Tanya

It looks to me that you're right.  Ken Rothwell's Shakespeare on Screen
lists only snippets of Hamlet--the longest is Forbes-Robertson's 22
minutes--prior to the Nielsen film.  Barrymore's 1933 test shots don't
include "To be or not to be," so Hepburn is probably the first to read
them on screen.  Interestingly, this would seem to mean that the second
actor to read the speech, and the first male actor, was Jack Benny.
