Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
 
Just in case some of you might share my interest in English literature
before 1563, I thought I'd distribute the following announcement of
the Chaucer Net.  (There are as yet no official announcements, but this
text comes from the first Chaucer Net mailing, sent out today.)
 
If I am stretching the bounds of SHAKSPEReans' interests, please
do let me know.
                                               Ken Steele

Chaucer Network  [ . . . ]
 
This is a trial run, so to speak, for a full-fledged Chaucer network.  If it
works well, and fulfills a need, I will propose that it become an official
activity of the New Chaucer Society at the 1992 meeting in Seattle.  In the
meantime, I hope that our informal group will operate much as the well-
established discussion groups in our field, for example Humanist and AnsaxNet.
In short, I hope that this list will fulfill many of the traditional functions
of a printed newsletter, as well as be a medium for informal exchange among
ourselves.  [ . . . ]
 
A brief technical note:  this list is not yet automatically run via listserv
software, as is the norm.  So messages for the entire list should be sent to
me (

  or tbestul@unlvax1.bitnet) and I will distribute
them.  If the message is a private one for me, please be sure to indicate
that.  I expect that, if things go well, a fully automated list, complete with
fileserver, will be operational by the summer.
 
I look forward to hearing from you, and to receiving your contributions for our
discussion group.
