Happy Bill's Day from the Folger!  We're celebrating tomorrow (Saturday
the 24th) with an Open House and fun and games from 10 to 4.
 
Monday the 26th at 8 PM, Michael Neill from the University of Auckland
with give the annual Shakespeare Birthday Lecture at the Folger.  His
topic is "Shakespeare and Translation," concerned with the treatment of
cultural difference in the plays, and with the "translatability" of
Shakespeare's work for 20th-century readers and audiences.
 
Michael is a very good speaker, and we hope as many of you as possible
who are in the area will be able to attend.

        Many of us saw the Branagh film at SAA in Atlanta a few weeks
ago: it was wonderful, a joy, in fact.  For me, it helped to resolve
the Claudio/Hero mess. I'd be happy to learn what others think about it.
 
Yours,
Bernice

A colleague is preparing a study of stepmothers (real), and has asked for
help with literary or dramatic representations.  I have already put out
a query to HUMANIST, but thought it worthwhile to make a more specific
enquiry here.  As far as I remember, there are no stepmothers in Shakespeare
- have I forgotten anything?  Are there any stepmothers of note in Renaissance
drama more generally?  Any assistance would be welcome.
