Two years ago in the Leiden Faculty of Letters a series of lectures
was given on "Greek Myth and Roman History on Stage and
Screen", viz. how the myths and the history had been represented in
plays and films. It was the intention of the organizers of the series
that the lectures would eventually be published as a book.
Unfortunately, for various reasons, only a portion of the lectures
have been submitted as articles. Nevertheless, it still remains an
interesting project and I was wondering whether you could help us
by publicizing the Call for Articles for the projected book on your
Website. We already have articles on such subjects as "Greek
Tragedy and the Hollywood Film Noir", "Medea in Modern Media",
"Shakespeare's `Antony and Cleopatra' and Shaw's `Caesar and
Cleopatra': Putting the Roman Empire on the Stage" and "Antique or
Classic?: German Drama Around 1800". I would like to hear from
anybody who would be interested in contributing to such a book.

Very best wishes,

Dr Cedric Barfoot, English Department, Leiden University, Leiden,
