Dear colleagues,
 
The people wishing information on the issues of the Rose excavations and
on the research concerning that theatre may find the following book useful:
 
      Franklin J. Hildy, ed.  *New Issues in the Reconstruction of
      Shakespeare's Theatre (Proceedings of the Conference Held at
      the University of Georgia, Feb. 16-18, 1990)*. New York, Bern,
      Frankfurt am Main, Paris: Peter Lang, 1990.
 
Articles: F.J. Hildy: "Reconstructing Shakespeare's Theatre"
          C. Walter Hodges: "What Is Possible: The Art and Science of
				Mistakes"
          J.M.C. Bowsher and Simon Blatherwick: "The Structure of the Rose"
          C. Walter Hodges: "Reconstructing the Rose"
          John Orrell: "Beyond the Rose: Design Problems for the
                          Globe Reconstruction"
          Andrew Gurr: "The Rose Repertory: What the Plays Might Tell
                          Us About the Stage"
 
I hope this will be useful to some of you.
 
Amicalement,
 
Luc Borot

At Oregon State University, I took a course from Robert Schwartz in which
we spent the entire time reading and talking about *King Lear*, as well as
hearing reports of some of the critical avenues into the play, and watching
various productions, including Olivier, Peter Brook, the BBC production,
and another by a Russian whose name escapes me, perhaps Kizintsky?  At any
rate, it was quite enjoyably to read the play, hear about the major
interpretations, and see how they were handled in the adaptions.  Some
students even went to Portland, where *King Lear* was being performed by
the Oregon Shakespeare Company (or whatever it's called).
 
Robert Schwartz can be contacted at:

but I'm not sure he's all that familiar with e-mail, and may not respond
for that reason.
