Like Mark Burnett, I have benfitted greatly from the many posts on this list-serv.  I have also enjoyed having a forum where I can post information that may be of interest to scholars working on Shakespeare and film, particularly Shakespeare spin-offs and citations of Shakespeare in films.  The forum is essential, in my view, to anyone working in this area of research.  The is no other database like it.

Maybe it really is better to write without an addressee.
-- Jacques Ranicere, The Flesh of Words: the Politics of Writing, 145
Heidegger said in a moving way: one of the most silent and timid of men suffered the torment of being obliged to cry out and, enigma following enigma, what was a cry risked becoming idle chatter. Nietzsche's admonition, "the written cry of the thought"--a cry that took form in the disagreeable book that is Zarathrustra--in fact came to be lost two ways: it was not heard, it was heard overly well; nihilism became the commonplace of thought and of literature.
--Maurice Blanchot, The Infinite Conversation, 143
And yet reading must find its rhythm, the right measure and cadence.  In the measure, at least, that it attempts to bring us to grasp a meaning that does not come through understanding.  Let us recall the epigraph to Allegories of Reading: "Quand on lit trop vite ou trop doucement on n'entend rien.' Pascal." (When one reads too swiftly or too slowly one understands nothing.) One should never forget the authoritative ellipsis of this warning. But at what speed ought one to have read it?  On the very threshold of the book, it might have been swiftly overlooked.
--Jacques Derrida, Memoires for Paul de Man, Revised Edition, note 3, p. 88
But this very understanding was gained through the suffering of wanting to publish but not being able to do it.
--Søren Kierkegaard, deleted from the posthumously published The Point of View on My Work as an Author, 214
Differences of speed do seem to be determining.  The rhythm differential counts a lot for me; it governs practically everything. It’s not very original when it comes down to it, you only have to be a driver to know this:  knowing how to accelerate, slow down, stop, and start up again.  The driving lesson applies just as well to private life and accidents are always possible. The scene of the car accident is imprinted or overprinted in quite few of my texts, like a sort of premonitory signature, a bit sinister. That said, I don’t believe that speeding up on the political highway has been, as you suggest, the result of media pressure.
--Jacques Derrida, “Others are Secret Because They Are Other” Paper Machine, 153

Dear Eve-Marie,
I have benefited greatly from the database and from the conversations.
You might like to know that your listings have provided me with the basis for the films I am discussing in my current book, Shakespeare and World Cinema (contracted with Cambridge University Press), a project that has been externally funded by the AHRC (Research Leave Scheme) and by the Folger Shakespeare Library (a short-term fellowship). I am also talking on this subject at at NEH summer course run by the Folger (2011) on Global Shakespeares.
Best wishes,
Prof. Mark Burnett, Queen's University, Belfast

Dear Listmembers,

The British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) who is responsible for hosting and maintaining the International Database of Shakespeare on Film, Television and Radio (http://bufvc.ac.uk/shakespeare/) is interested in hearing from those who use and benefit from the services it provides.

Feedback received will be used to justify the continued investment and development of BUFVC services such as the Shakespeare Database and may also be used to form a case study on the BUFVC website. This is especially important at this time when beneficiaries of public funding are under review.

If you or your institution has benefited from BUFVC's services, please give your thoughts some tongue and drop us a couple of lines to tell us how!  We look forward to hearing from you.

Types of questions to address:


 *   How has the service benefited you/your institution?
 *   What was the main reason behind you/your institution using BUFVC's services?
 *   How do BUFVC services support learning/teaching/research in your institution?
 *   Who are the primary users of the BUFVC services within your institution?  How does it help this group?

Please submit your feedback to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

Many thanks for taking the time to do this. We are grateful for your continued support in keeping this discussion list and the Shakespeare Database alive and kicking.

Kind regards,

Eve
