Subject: Livewire Shakespeare
I am trapped in a Catch-22.
I am working on an article about the history of Shakespeare comic books
for SNL. There is a series in the U. K. called "Livewire Shakespeare,"
published by Cambridge University Press. Some of their titles have been
published in the U. S. by Barron's, but four have not. These are not
currently on the Barron's publishing schedule, nor is CUP New York
planning to publish them.
CUP in England tells me they can not ship review copies to North America.
This is insipid, obviously, but it is what I have to work with. I hope
some members of SHAKSPER who have seen the four titles I can not get will
write to me off-list to tell me what they think of each title. I have a
strong impression of the series as a whole from the five titles I have
read, so I'm looking for what you think of the strengths and weaknesses of
the following books:
Please send your message off-list to spare Hardy, and put "Livewire
Shakespeare" in the subject field so that your message will escape my spam
filter. Thank you in advance.
All the best,
