Shakespeare wrote more than plays - his sonnets are quite stunning, and I would suggest they might perhaps lend themselves to a visual rendering of their rich imagery in SL - what do you think? And there could be readings of the sonnets too
Not specific yet - perhaps "Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day..." (sonnet 18)
How's this for Shakespeare's description of SL:
"What is your substance, whereof are you made,
That millions of strange shadows on you tend?
Since every one, hath every one, one shade,
And you but one, can every shadow lend:
Describe Adonis and the counterfeit,
Is poorly imitated after you..."
It occurs to me that there is a rich soil for SL interpretation of these images
What I find particularly interesting is the shift back and forth over time of fashions in youth versus maturity in the faces - which speaks volumes about film-makers' views of beauty, and by extension the cultural norms reflected in the American film industry
Age of faces - I think it depends on which production you go to and the interpretation of the director. Hamlet, for example, is of disputable age. While he acts like a teenager, many claim he's actually 30-something.
