Subject: 	Stephen Greenblatt on "The Colbert Report"

Stephen Greenblatt, author of "Will in the World," appeared on Comedy Central's 
show "The Colbert Report" on Thursday, Oct. 2 to discuss parallels between the 
U.S. presidential candidates and Shakespeare characters.

There's currently a clip of the segment on Stephen Colbert's home page:

But that will likely disappear in the next few days. However, the entire Oct. 2 
episode is available here:

Colbert's shows are also available on iTunes.

The lead-up to the discussion with Greenblatt starts about 4:15 into the show.
