addendum (in which Elizabeth demonstrates yet again why she wants to go to grad school)

Sharon was talking about wanting to reread As You Like It for the "Elizabeth reading" and eventually having a free-for-all with me about Shakespeare. The idea of an "Elizabeth reading" made me think, Wouldn't it be cool if i could teach a college course Shakespeare the Gay Way? Or just a course on reading for subtext? Lit classes are all about authorial intent, but wouldn't it be interesting to read for the stuff that isn't necessarily intended -- and of course you could have wonderful fights about which subtexts were intentional. And we could discuss the importance of authorial intent and i could make cracks about Anne Rice ;)
