Subject:      	BIOGRAFY
In a clumsy attempt to free-up disc space in my central computer files,
I happened to come across the BIOGRAFY files sent in by people on the
SHAKSPER mailing list.  Interesting reading!  Lots of people concerned
with production rather than "straight" scholarship.  (I've always been
more happily bent in any performance work that I did than during the
more formal -- and combative -- drills as a textual scholar.)  I'd like
to encourage any of the readers who have been out there quiet as mice to
toss in their comments and passing thoughts.  The idea the Germaine
Warkentin has a book on "Astrophil and Stella" and is in the network and
could cheer us on with thoughts about that so-dramatic handbook of
narrative strategies . . . And that we have lively medievalists and
computer scientists and actor/director/designer types . . . Hey, that's
what makes soup interesting, lotsa flavors.

I'm glad that Steve is enjoying the biography files from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver -- there are currently four of them, filled with useful and
interesting information about both past publications and work in
progress of the membership.  I would like to take this opportunity to
urge members to download these files (if they don't have up-to-date
copies) and store them somewhere convenient -- I keep copies on a
floppy diskette, where I can search them readily.
To obtain all the member biography files, and the CMS software to go
with them, just send the command "GET BIOGRAFY PACKAGE SHAKSPER" to
<Listserv@utoronto.bitnet> and the files should be on their way to you.
Incidentally, thanks to the recent full-page announcement in the
Shakespeare Association of American Bulletin (for which I am grateful
to Michael Warren for his persuasive lobbying in camera, and Steve
Urkowitz for his added support at the annual meeting) membership
requests have begun to arrive from exotic locations like Hawaii,
Switzerland, Germany, and Ireland -- and of course those requests came
from scholars already on Bitnet.  If the announcement also persuades
non-netted folk to join us, it may take a little longer to gauge its
impact.  At any rate, despite some attrition, SHAKSPER has continued
its steady growth and is now just over 170 members -- not bad for a
fledgling operation, barely a year old.
Now that we're all back to work after summers spent away on research
or out on the beach, perhaps discussion here will become a little more
active, too.  I'll certainly try to do my part...
