Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Marjorie Garber is one of the world's premier Shakespeare scholars and teaches at Harvard. Her latest book is On Shakespeare and Modern Culture. She tells Anne Strainchamps how Shakespeare makes modern culture and modern culture makes Shakespeare, and we hear examples from the plays and film versions like Shakespeare in Love.

Next, Jess Winfield was one of the original members of "The Reduced Shakespeare Company." He's now a novelist and talks with Jim Fleming about My Name is Will: a novel of sex, drugs and Shakespeare.

Then, Mark Anderson is the author of Shakespeare by Another Name: The Life of Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford, the Man Who Was Shakespeare. Anderson tells Steve Paulson that no single piece of evidence is conclusive, but all the funny coincidences "prove" his thesis. Shakespeare biographer Stephen Greenblatt isn't persuaded. He demolishes Anderson's theory during his conversation with Steve and insists that Shakespeare's genius is precisely that he wasn't a nobleman.

Finally, Karen Winborn tells Jim Fleming about Classical Comics which have published three versions of Shakespeare plays, pairing various versions of the texts with bright, action-packed, comic book style visuals. She explains the company's goals and their success, so far. [Broadcast Date: March 5, 2010]
