Shakespeare Hokey Pokey

Subject:     Shakespeare Hokey Pokey

 

Thought y’all would enjoy this:

 

The following is from the Washington Post Style Invitational contest that asked readers to submit “instructions” for something (anything), but written in the style of a famous person. The winning entry was The Hokey Pokey (as written by William Shakespeare).

 

O proud left foot, that ventures quick within

Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.

Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:

Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.

Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke,

A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.

To spin! A wilde release from Heavens yoke.

Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.

The Hoke, the poke—banish now thy doubt

Verily, I say, 'tis what it’s all about.

        -- by “William Shakespeare”

 

Ambiguity in the V&A Address

Subject:     Ambiguity in the V&A Address

 

My recent airing of “Ambiguity in the V&A Address” and the variety of reactions have, as usual, provided me with helpful insights. In response, I have developed an article (still brief, at around 2000 words). It remains, I suggest, thought-provoking.

 

If anyone wants to read it, please contact me directly. In return, I would appreciate feedback and reasoned criticism.

Hello,

 

I am a French student of English literature studies and I am looking for a pamphlet entitled ‘Two Most Vnnatural and Bloodie Murthers’ written around 1605 and published in the Stationers’ Register.

 

Could you help me find it?

 

Many thanks in advance,

Capucine Francois

Call for Participation

 

Help us found the Asian Shakespeare Association [http://asianshakespeare.org].

 

Asia has affected the studies and performances of Shakespeare in Asia and around the world. This calls for a collective effort—increasing exchanges and collaborations among Asian Shakespeareans and between Asia and the rest of the world. But given the vastness and diversity of Asia, the richness of its scholarship and theatres, we can, should, and must do more. The time has come to establish a formal association: a non-profit, non-government organization dedicated to researching, producing, teaching, translating, and promoting Shakespeare from an Asian perspective.

 

A draft constitution has been created. The next step is to recruit more participants and to elect an executive committee through an online vote. More detail about membership, governance, conferences and other matters will be discussed in the executive committee when it is formed.

 

If you support the idea, please sign up. Online registration opens on 1 January 2013.

 

If you register before 31 January 2013, you can log in to nominate candidates for the executive committee. The nomination will close after 31 January 2013. Online election for committee members will open on 1 February and close on 28 February 2013.

 

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know.

 

We look forward to your participation. Please also help to spread the word in your community.
