Subject: 	Merchant of Venice and the Bible
 
	A colleague of mine is looking for the following texts in
electronic format: Merchant of Venice, Geneva Bible, and the Bishop's
Bible.
	He hopes to be able to use the two Bibles to locate occurrences
in "The Merchant of Venice" where Shakespeare quoted from the bibles
readily available at the time.
 
	He would be most grateful if you could contact me at
the e-mail address supplied below if you know of any of these texts being
available in electronic format, or if you know of any software that he
might use to search the texts for direct quotes.
 
	Thank you very much,
 
Sincerely,

I am currently working with Ann Pasternak-Slater's book, "Shakespeare the
Director." Does anyone know if she is on an email system because I would love
to ask her some questions regarding her work as it relates to my thesis. Any
help or suggestion would be welcome.

Subject: 	The 1990 World Shakespeare Bibliography
 
Fellow SHAKSPERians may be interested to know that we have just sent the
1990 *SQ* Bibliography to the printer. It will include 4925 separate
entries, including 1576 books, 993 productions, 2356 articles, and
624 numbered cross-references. Included in the entries for books and
productions are citations to 3445 reviews.
 
	I'll end this statistical report with a plea for SHAKSPERians
to send along offprints or notices of their books, articles, reviews,
etc., as well as clippings of reviews of regional or local productions.
Although we scan hundreds of publications, we inevitably overlook
or miss items of Shakespeare interest.

News of the Rose Theatre Site

             ROSE THEATRE SITE FINALLY SCHEDULED!
 
   The following brief item appeared in The London TIMES
on Saturday 29 Feb 1992:
 
ANCIENT ROSE  The Rose Theatre, the Elizabethan playhouse found
three years ago in Southwark, south London, which was saved from
destruction by the campaigning of actors and archaeologists led
by the late Dame Peggy Ashcroft, has been scheduled as an ancient
monument.  Baroness Blatch, the heritage minister, made the
announcement yesterday after a request for scheduling from the
owners of the site.
 
     A member of the Rose Theatre committee tells me that they
have no idea why the government decided to announce this news at
this time.  The committee is still seeking funding to find
a method of displaying the remains in the basement of the office
block now occupying the site.  Apparently the office block remains
unoccupied in the current recession.  The scheduling of the site
is to be welcomed, I suppose, though I cannot imagine how it will
help matters for the time being.  Certainly it will not bring
back the lost archaeological material drilled away to build
foundations for the building.  Nor will it, of itself, provide any
funding as far as I know.

Qs: Sh. & Myth; Ophelia's Madness; Encoding Sonnets

Subject: 	Shakespeare and mythology
 
Does anyone have any favorite texts or other printed matter relating to
Shakespeare and mythology references?  My daughter is doing a term paper on the
subject and is so far looking at Midsummer and _Romeo & Juliet_ although I'm
sure she'll add more plays to this list.  The library has about a thousand
listings each for Shakespeare and mythology so it will take a while to go
through all the listings.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Subject:      	Ophelia's Madness; Encoding the Sonnets
 
This Friday (March 13) I will be presenting a paper entitled "The politics of
Ophelia's madness; Or, a method to her madness."  Soon thereafter, I intend to
send it in for publication.  A few questions:  Which journals would be
interested in a feminist paper on *Hamlet*, and does anyone know of articles
or essays that deal with Ophelia's madness (!not! primarily related to
Hamlet's actions or Polonius' death)?  The reason I'm asking is to see if
anyone has seen something I may have missed in my research.  I checked in
PSYClit, MLA, ABELL & Dissertation Abstracts.  I will appreciate any comments.
 
As to the sonnets and the indication of italics, I think that the <it> breaks
the sequence of words on the screen and interrupts reading.  The use of quotes
would be much better.
 
                          Thanks,
