Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0660 Whence the Wince? Kerry as Hamlet, Bush as Hal

I would prefer to stick to the same play.  Kerry as Hamlet, perhaps, but
Bush as Laertes (quick to act but perhaps too quick, a true son of his
father, the front man for the real puppet-master behind the scenes?).
But perhaps we'd prefer a comedy to a tragedy.  As You Like It?  The
ending appeals anyway -- the usurping Duke has a conversion experience
and retires to a monastery, graciously turning over the kingdom to his
virtuous opponent.

The belligerent but easily confused Fortinbras would be a better choice
for W.

Full Title of the Plays of Shakespeare

Dear All,

Sorry, but I can't help thinking that Norton as a guide to S's 'original
titles' is a bit of a joke...

Professional interest all aside!

Cheers,
Marcus

Shakespeare, the Famous English Chunk Writer

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.0673  Friday, 12 March 2004

From:           Sean Lawrence <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Date:           Thursday, 11 Mar 2004 14:12:11 -0800
Subject: 15.0655 Shakespeare, the Famous English Chunk Writer
Comment:        RE: SHK 15.0655 Shakespeare, the Famous English Chunk Writer

W Lin objects that "Some teachers appear to be 'preachers of
Shakespeare'", after arguing that "it is still possible to remain
inspiring and intriguing at the same time".

Perhaps your use of "inspire" is ironic?  It seems far more mysterious
to inspire than to preach.

Secondly, I'm not sure what you mean by studying Shakespeare "simply for
cultural heritage's sake".  This seems a very different endeavour to
assuming "that Shakespeare offers to everyone or anyone some kind of
mysterious key into a transcendent knowledge, understanding, humanity,
happiness, sophistication, or whatever."

In any case, the less that Shakespeare contributes (to cultural
heritage, or understanding, or humanity, or happiness, or whatever), the
less reason there should be to read him.

Yrs,
SKL.

Can we get a copy of this table posted to the file-server?

Cheers,
Sean.

[Editor's Note: I would be glad to include this file in the "Reference
Files" section of the SHAKSPER web site:
<http://www.shaksper.net/archives/files/reference.html>. What I need is
for someone to volunteer to re-format the information so that the data
in the columns lines up. The volunteer should e-mail me and I will send
a plain text version that can be returned to me as a Word document for
HTML conversion. -Hardy]
