Shakespeare and Oprah

Wroblewski, David. The Story of Edgar Sawtelle: A Novel. New York: Ecco, 2008.

A book that I've been meaning to read has made it to Oprah's Book Club! It's the Hamlet-related The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. I haven't yet read it, although it's been on my horizon for some time. Fortunately, its addition to the book club will virtually guarantee a host of inexpensive paperbacks in short order!

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.
