Subject: 	Query
 
A non-Shakespearian colleague has asked for help in locating the source of the
following lines:
 
        The damp lips of fever smiled
        The welcome which they could not utter.
 
They appear in Sir William Osler's notes for a speech (in 1919) about Walt
Whitman.  He has checked concordances for Shakespeare, Milton, Poe, Wordsworth,
Byron, Marvell, Donne, Emerson, Herbert, Herrick, Hopkins, Shelley, Keats,
Blake, and Tennyson with no success.
 
If anyone recognizes the lines, please send a message directly to Prof.
Philip W. Leon, English Department, The Citadel, Charleston, SC, 29409.  The
e-mail address is (for BITNET) <LEONP@CITADEL>, or (for INTERNET)

Query to Steve Urkowitz, and to all you folks who know much more about
Quartos and Folios than I do.
 
Since I acquired them through SHAKSPER's special offer, I have been making
a great deal of use of the Oxford Text Archive versions, on disk, of
Quarto and Folio Shakeapeare texts.  Is this a reasonable thing to do?
 
Do these texts represent reasonable renderings?  May I safely base production
scripts on them?  May I give alternate passages from Q and F versions to
classes, based on Oxford Text Archive texts?  In other words, may I assume
that Oxford Text Archive electronic texts are bringing their users reasonable
to the Quarto and Folio versions?
 
Thanks,
David Richman

A colleague of mine, an engineer who studied in India and England before
ending up here -- but that's another story -- asked me today if I could
recommend an edition of Shakespeare, single volumes, preferably hard-bound
so they will last, print not too small, and not too terribly expensive.
He said that his work is hard, and he needs something beautiful to read to
help him relax and be happy.  I showed him a few Ardens, which he liked
(especially the readability, the fact that he could just read the plays and
then go back another time to read the notes, the fact that the notes are very
thorough, the fact that although they're paperbacks they're at least bound in
signatures, I think [though my Arden *Measure for Measure* is now a loose-leaf
book...]...)  Are the blue-backed Cambridge Shakespeares still around?  Does
anybody have any cheap advice for me to pass on?
