An alert has been issued, warning Mrs JF from Louahvull, KY to avoid travelling to the UK during 2006, for her own peace of mind:

> Greenblatt's enthralling and beautiful Will in the World

Anyone know the book? I think Greenblatt one of the better Bard critics I've read; lord knows there's a lot of tosh.

> the ongoing miracle of the Globe continues.
> a battalion of critics ...who dismiss it as heritage museum or tourist trap

I have to say that the I thought the Globe was brilliant! I recommend it to anyone who visits London. I saw R&J and despite the carnival atmosphere, planes overhead and the less than ideal match up between the main protagonists I was startled by the comic and tragic effect the script still had. The writer puts it well:

"The spiritual life that there is in Shakespeare is always intimately connected to the fleshy and the human. The nunnery and the brothel, the church and the shebeen are yoked violently together in his world. Neither can survive without the other. No grace without tarts, no sex without nuns; no laughs without priests, and no redemption without wine."

Thanks for the link there, Max!

Actually, I think it makes an appearance in the most recent installment of the Number One Ladies' Detective Agency series...
