Comment: 	Re: SHK 3.0057  Rs: Prospero & Mercy
 
I don't know how helpful this will be in direct relationship to
Shakespeare, but in a sermon on the Penitentiall Psalms (undated, Potter &
Simpson, vol. V, p. 364), John Donne remarks:
	
	Prayer hath the nature of Violence; In the publique Prayers of the
	Congregation, we beseige God, saies *Tertullian*, and we take God
	Prisoner, and bring God to our conditions; and God is glad to be
	straitned by us in that seige.
 
C.A. Patrides quotes this in a gloss on George Herbert's "Prayer I" lines
five and six:
 
	Engine against th'Almighty, sinner's towre,
	    Reversed thunder, Christ-side-piercing spear,
 
(*The English Poems of George Herbert*, p. 70).

I apologize for using the list in this manner, but I am a desperate
man.  Can anyone out there secure for me a copy of Sunday March 1's
Toronto Star?  I need the special section devoted to Hemingway's
lost works.  I would be very grateful and would provide whatever
compensation necessary.

	physically in Hamilton and don't have the paper in question.
	Any Torontonians out there who can help? -- k.s.]

Grady Ward's offer is most generous and attractive. Which PD edition(s)
is he making available?

In a recent posting, Michael Dobson called attention to my "familiar
misconception" that Shakespeare had been undervalued as a playwright for
two centuries or so.  I will read Mr. Dobson's book with pleasure when it
appears.  Most of the eighteenth-century "improvements" on Shakespeare
I have read confirm the notion that his plays were mutilated (Shaw's word,
not mine) to fit a theater that had become quite unlike his.  Mr. Dobson
may teach me to find more merit in Dennis, Theobald et al than I have been
able to find on my own.  In the meantime, I'm afraid I will have to continue
to misconceive.
 
Cheers,
