Yesterday, Richard Burt <
> called attention to a
New Yorker cartoon by Roz Chast "The I.M.s of Romeo and Juliet (Romeo
and Juliet chat via Instant Messenger)."
He further noted that it could be viewed with other Shakespeare inspired
New Yorker cartoons online at Cartoonbank.com.
Among those I found the one with the movie executive on the phone
pitching a new film idea: "You'll love it! It's a tale told by an
idiot." For those who may not know the artist was Bernard Schoenbaum, a
prolific contributor to the New Yorker and brother of Sam. Of his close
to 350 cartoon that appeared in the New Yorker, this is the only one
with a Shakespeare theme.
