R: Travitsky's *Paradise of Women*

Subject:        Travitsky's *Paradise of Women*
 
I'm currently taking two courses which use Travitsky's *Paradise of Women*.
One is Shakespeare in the context of Women's Renaissance Culture, and the
other is on Women Writers Before 1800.  It is the second course where the
book is being used more often.
 
The lack of complete works and rather limited biographies are being compensated
for through the use of student research.  Before we begin discussing a writer,
a student gives a biography on her.  At the beginning of the course, the
entire class signed-up for either a biography or a panel discussion of feminist
theory.  The biographies have really helped in trying to keep the writers
separate, but the sheer number of women writers is a little overwhelming at
times.  This is especially true when the topics of two writers overlap.
 
Overall, I would say that Travitsky's book is lacking.

Q: Computer Programs

Subject:        Computer Programs
 
Now that we have many of the Shakespeare first editions as machine-readable
texts, does anybody know of a good program that helps us to compare them in the
way an editor would do this?  One that produces a list of variants
automatically, for example? I am sure there are such programs (TUSTEP in German
among others), but I should like to have the advice of somebody who has
actually worked with them--if they exist at all . . .

Re: Nate Johnson's comments on *The Paradise of Women*
 
Yes, Travitsky's book is useful, but many of its selections are very brief. A
colleague and I used it this fall in a course on Voices and Images of Women
in the English Renaissance, but it seemed to me that the students had a hard
time keeping track of all the women represented, and I found myself wishing
that more texts were presented in their entirety.

A teacher named Steve Herbert from Singapore has written several programs
to help his high school students learn/study Shakespeare and other
writers.  I have been able to get Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet from ftp
archives.  I wondered if anyone knows where his others (or other such
material) are available.

Subject:        Shakespeare's (?) Portrait in the Nat'l Portrait Gallery
 
     I've heard lately from a couple of sources that the supposed
portrait of Shakespeare in the National Portrait Gallery (which
some have thought by Burbage) has gained some support for its
authenticity in recent research.  Does anybody have the cites?
 
                                  Much appreciated,

Betty Travitsky's *The Paradise of Women: Writings by Englishwomen of
the Renaissance* is a compact and economical source of women's writings
in anthology form.
