Comment:      	Re: SHK 2.0229  The Earl of Oxford vs William Shakespeare
 
I have read most of the article in ATLANTIC and find myself very annoyed at
the way in which the author(s) make use of arguments--flimsy arguments--
on both sides of the issue.  When it is to the advantage of their contention
favoring Oxford they make insufficient evidence seem sufficient; they do
exactly the reverse when reviewing evidence that might favor WS (such as the
sad fact that Oxford died in 1604).  Perhaps most silly is their denoting
the author of the plays as Shakespear, while referring to William Shakespeare
as "the man from Stratford."  Why is this stuff in a major magazine?

	Question: can anyone think of a major female character in
Shakespeare besides Cressida and Miranda who never speaks or shares
the stage with another female?

     	There are several video copies of Chimes at Midnight around.
	Some are:
 
            Balzac Video             1987
            Facets Multimedia        1989
 
      	Not sure if the following info pertains to the video company,
   	or the original motion pic:
 
            Arthur Cantor Prod.      1987
            NOW Playing              1967
 
      	Does this help?

I just talked to a sales rep from McGraw-Hill who are
bringing out the Bevington Shakespeare in a couple of
months.
 
They list an 18 disc "Shakespeare on Disc" (IBM and Mac
compatible) as a supplement to the book.  The sales rep had
no specific info about it.
 
Has anyone heard of it?  Will it be the Bevington text? Is
there an additional cost? Or will it be supplied upon
adoption of the text for a course?
