Stateside Shakespeare

I've returned from Israel.  Whether I wasn't looking in the right places or whether there's really not quite as much Shakespeare there as I'd like, I didn't find much Shakespeare there.

Even the Jerusalem Film Festival—with copious offerings of almost every imaginable sort—seemed to have nothing Shakespearean to offer.

Of course, I brought some Shakespeare with me, but I didn't seem to have too much time to watch any—let alone any time to write about it!  But, now that I'm back, I hope to have the opportunity to get back on track, Shakespeare-and-film-wise.

No comments:

Bardfilm is normally written as one word, though it can also be found under a search for "Bard Film Blog." Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).

Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:
Shakespeare, William. The Riverside Shakespeare. 2nd ed. Gen. ed. G. Blakemore Evans. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.

The very instant that I saw you did / My heart fly to your service; there resides, / To make me slave to it; and, for your sake, / Am I this patient [b]log-man.
