The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 18.0439 Wednesday, 4 July 2007
Date: Wednesday, July 04, 2007
Subject: Shakespeare and Duke Ellington
In yesterday's post on "Events in Stratford (Ont)" by Tanya Gough, I
included an Editor's Note calling attention to three recent pieces by
Fran Teague that dealt with the Ellington-jazz and Shakespeare connection.
Fran modestly wrote me to say that Steve Buhler and Doug Lanier in
essays that appeared in that same issue of B&L as hers have the most to
say about Ellington's engagement with Shakespeare. These three
originally presented their papers in a memorable panel, "The Duke's Man:
Ellington, Shakespeare and Jazz Adaptation," at the SAA Annual Meeting
in New Orleans in 2004. The panel was moderated by Terence Hawkes, who
provides an introduction to the essay cluster that appeared in the
inaugural issue of <I>Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare
http://lachesis.english.uga.edu/cocoon/borrowers/11_index. I proudly
note that all four of these eminent Shakespeareans - Fran, Steve, Doug,
and Terry - are all long-time members of SHAKSPER.
