Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming Up This Week

As extreme weather batters parts of the planet, the Foxes take refuge in stories to stay calm. It works some of the time. This week we look at new interpretations of a couple of Master Writers, showing how their works can be presented for modern audiences without betraying their core principles. So keep an open mind and feel free to share some of your own favorites, if you wish.

Monday- An overlooked Classic from the VL archives.

Wednesday- Jackie explains the appeal of the latest retelling of Shakespeare, Will on American television.

Friday Hilary continues her Jane Austen theme with an account of the making of the definitive best ever JA adaptation for the screen (I’m sorry, I’m not prepared to discuss this), Clueless.
