On theater vs. film, he is startling. On Shylock, he is fierce. On 
Harold Bloom, he is pugnacious. Anyone who read the New Yorker article 
he published two years ago about the scholarly issues that now divide 
editors of Hamlet, King Lear, and other classics will know that Ron 
Rosenbaum takes Shakespeare personally and offers an unforgettable way 
of rethinking the greatest works of the human imagination. Focusing on 
cutting-edge controversies about the source of the poet's enchantment, 
his astonishing use of a language he made uniquely his own, Mr. 
Rosenbaum spent seven years pursuing key partisans in today's debates, 
from the high tables at Oxford to a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop in a Deep 
South strip mall. Witty and provocative, Mr. Rosenbaum "comes to us in 
new waves of revelation," according to Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet 
Laureate. His best-selling Explaining Hitler has been translated into 
ten languages. He writes a column for the New York Observer, and his 
reflections have appeared in the New York Times, Harper's, and The 
Atlantic. In a dialogue that will serve as prelude to Shakespeare in 
Washington 2007, a city-wide festival that is being coordinated by the 
Kennedy Center, Mr. Rosenbaum will talk with John F. Andrews, Executive 
Director of ESU Washington and President of the Shakespeare Guild.
