Dear SHAKSPEReans,
 
My first contribution to discussion will be a question. Someone
in the Elizabethan Centre in Montpellier is preparing a review of
the Oxford Electronic Shakespeare, for which we have received a
review-copy of the Macintosh set of disks. We are slightly disap-
pointed to hear from OUP that there is no software for text analysis
like Micro OCP for work on the Mac.
 
Have you heard of an equivalent of Word-cruncher or Micro OCP for
the Mac, available or being prepared? I have asked the service in
charge of Electronic editions at OUP and they say they won't adapt
OCP, and the Apple engineers who replied to my question on the
Apple France server don't seem to know what it is or even to bother
to ask someone who may know.
 
If it does not exist, it should be developed, shouldn't it?
Thank you for your help.
 
I read in the logbooks which were sent me on 1st subscribing that
there were enquiries about multiple Ariels in Tempest productions
before Greenaway's. The answer may be in the play-reviews of Cahiers
Elisabethains. When the indexes are sent, and made available on
SHAKSPER, check for our reviews of the Tempest. As the journal is
in many libraries (and also for sale from Montpellier) we may provide
you, or you may look for yourselves.
 
Current subscription price: FF180,00 (French Francs only, sorry) and
140,00 in France. Separate issues: 85,00. For you, current year and
1991 for the price of your first sub.. 2 issues: April and October.
 
Any volunteers to review Shakespeare productions in Canada may send
papers (1-2 pp. in English preferably) through e-mail here, or to
our address sent by K. Steele with our bios earlier this week.
We shall send reply as to acceptance as soon as possible.
 
Thank you if you help.

Others might like to know that even though they do not - or do not yet -
have a mouse, it's still possible to evaluate the [PC-Shakespeare
Hypertext] program.
 
One would use one's arrow keys on the numeric pad instead, entering where
one wishes to go or do what one wants to do.  A bit cumbersome and certainly,
I'd think, a great incentive for anyone to go out and get themselves a
mouse. :-))

		made a mouse sound like a hardware requirement for
		PC-Shakespeare, and it's not.  I have edited the above
		from private correspondence, because it's a point
		worth making.  It also might be worth pointing out
		that the six history plays included in the package
		will probably be useful to those on other platforms, too.
