Thanks to all who submitted haiku to our recent Authorship Haiku Competition (for which, q.v.). We have our winners.They write the haiku.
The judges deliberate.
Victory is sweet.
Third place goes to Andrew Huntley for this wonderful haiku:
Second place has been awarded to Mad Minerva, who wrote this:Epic scholar fail:
de Vere is no great writer
And Emmerich is a fool.
And first place goes to bammers for this haiku and its cautionary tale:Want real fantasy
Told with skill? Screw Emmerich.
Go read The Tempest.
Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks again to all who submitted. And thanks, too, to Simon and Schuster, who provided copies of James Shapiro's Contested Will as the first- and second-place prizes. The third-place prize will be a used (but not too used) copy of Drama of the English Renaissance, edited by M. L. Wince.Bacon once told me
He wrote all of Shakespeare's plays.
Ne'er heed talking food.
