Subject: 	Too Much Hamlet

I am using P. G. Wodehouse's "Too Much Hamlet" to make a point in an 
article. I have only seen it in an obscure anthology that will not be 
available to most readers. Will someone please direct me to a more 
available source, preferably the first printing, but one that at least 
includes the year of publication?

Thanks in advance,
Mike Jensen

Subject: 	Publications

While I have published frequently in film and popular culture, I have 
only one previous venture into Shakespeare, and that was not in a 
Shakespearean  journal per se.

With a great deal of help from this list, I have finally finished a 
piece on the dramaturgy of the Archbishop of Canterbury's interminable 
oration at the beginning   of Act I, Sc 2 of Henry V.

Can anyone suggest a reasonable venue. This is strictly dramaturgical, 
about staging, cutting, et cetera.

Piece runs about 18 double space pages with FN.

All suggestions welcomed.

Thanks,
Harvey Roy Greenberg

Understanding Antony

Donald Bloom writes: "If . . .  you mean by 'the present' a state of 
mind that includes as much presumption, circular reasoning, prejudice, 
bigotry and illogic as can be found in the past, then you may have it. 
But I don't think you do. In fact, I'd be stunned if you did."

Professor Bloom will have to be stunned. I suggest that he read the 
newspapers or that he stop for an online info-snack.

Branagh Hamlet DVD Update

Comment: 	Re: SHK 18.0097 Branagh Hamlet DVD Update

Actually, a DVD can have up to 720x576 pixels/frame because PAL is 
higher than NTSC. In the case of scan lines, you have 1080i (which is 
540/540 interlaced lines) or you have 1080p, which displays like film 
(one frame at a time like film instead of interlacing). Film is not 
measured in resolution like DV or HD is so that's why it's difficult to 
make a direct comparison. Some (like Canon) have stated it would take 
around 40 megapixels of depth to equal a 35mm film frame, and there has 
been tons of speculation & testing which purport other results. But the 
bottom line is mostly subjective. The "art of compression" is a complex 
one, so even if 70% of a film's image is tossed when going to digital, 
*which* 70% is it?  Is it 69% of the film you can't even see even in a 
movie theatre?  Is the viewer's subjective "filmgoing" experience any 
less? Maybe waxing too philosophical here. :)

Maybe Branagh's Hamlet will skip DVD altogether and jump directly to 
HD-DVD/Blu-ray?  One can only hope...

Renaissance Tragedy

For Peter Goldman --

There's a wealth of scholarship that addresses your questions.  Among 
the many book-length studies, three excellent ones I would suggest off 
the top of my head are Catherine Belsey's The Subject of Tragedy, 
Jonathan Dollimore's Radical Tragedy, and Robert Ornstein's The Moral 
Vision of Jacobean Tragedy.  Hope this is of some help.
