I've noticed that several HyperCard "editions" of Shakespeare's plays
are available at FTP sites archiving MAC programs.  Has anyone looked
at these?  Is anyone commenting on the phenomenon?  My instant reaction
is that this would be a great tool for students, but then I'm not really
a Shakespearean, just a follower.

Well, yes, actually there is something I've been thinking about:
 
Someone mentioned to me not long ago that lately there has been a
certain resurgence of interest in the Harrison/Cornford/Murray type of
drama interpretation.  It was certainly a facinating approach -- Gilbert
Murray's lecture on Hamlet and Orestes showed how it could be also applied
to Shakespearean tragedy.  But even with Northrop Frye's brilliant writing
along these lines (as in Anat. of Crit.), I am still not quite convinced
of the relevancy it has to texts far removed from the antique origins of
drama.
 
Perhaps someone thinks otherwise.

A possible subject change...
 
I've had a most interesting two weeks in my undergraduate Shaxpr class, on
Merchant of Venice. The question of anti-Semitism/Racism occupied the students'
attention, almost exclusively.
 
I wonder how (or even if) members of this list would defend Shakespeare against
the student charge, based on MofV, that he is a racist and an anti-Semite.
