Subject:       New to Scholarly Papers for Comment

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

One feature of the older web site that is maintained in the new one is the Scholarly Papers for Comment section, under the Scholarly Resources TAB: http://shaksper.net/scholarly-resources/scholarly-papers-for-comments

Before the hiatus to get the new site in order, there were two papers posted from SHAKSPER subscribers seeking comments:

Papers by SHAKSPER Members Seeking Critical Advice

As a service to its members, SHAKSPER makes selected papers for which the author would like comments available for a short time on the SHAKSPER server.

The following papers are currently available:

"Ovid's Metamorphoses in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds", by JD Markel < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it >.

This essay primarily analyzes the literary influences from Ovid's Metamorphoses as they appear in Tarantino's recent film Inglourious Basterds. In addition, the essay addresses four plays by Shakespeare: Merchant of Venice, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, and Othello.  Ovid’s Metamorphoses in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds

"Hamlet: An Interpretation in the Light of Indian Idea of Kingship" was recently published in the Indian journal Points of View (XVI, 2 (Winter 2009): 25-35) and was co-authored by Vinod Kumar Singh.  Hamlet: An Interpretation in the Light of Indian Idea of Kingship

I recently learned from JD Markel that his essay "Tarantino's Transformations: Inglourious Basterds' Dizzying Array of Sources" has been published with changes in the film journal Bright Lights: http://www.brightlightsfilm.com/72/72ovidtarantino_markel.php. This publication reflects the intention I have for the section Papers by SHAKSPER Members Seeking Critical Advice. Congratulations JD.

Today, I am adding a new essay to this section: “Nashe, Southampton and Shakespeare’s Sonnets” by SHAKSPER subscriber Ian Steere < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it >  This essay brings together evidence to show that the satirical author, Thomas Nashe, had a much closer and more vitriolic relationship with Henry Wriothesley and, by extension, William Shakespeare than has previously been realized. The discovery sheds more light on the relationship of the third earl of Southampton with Shakespeare and strengthens the probability of a significant element of biography within Shakespeare's Sonnets.
