Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0079  Re: Another Subject?
 
Regarding the HyperCard versions of the plays--I haven't looked at them in
depth, but I was impressed with the brief playing-around I gave Macbeth. I plan
to download them and set them up into a "library " section of my own creation,
a HyperCard TheatreTour. Over the weekend I began creating icons to represent
each of the plays, but soon hit a brick wall. Anyone have suggestions for
easy-to-recognize visual symbols for each of the plays? (For example, for Two
Gentlemen of Verona, two small figures turn  toward and away each other at the
mouse click.) Please send any suggestions to: sas14@psuvm.
 
Thanks,

Subject:        Basic refs on folklore & Shakespeare
 
Can someone supply a list of "basic" references on the topic of folklore
and Shakespeare?
 
A student in one of my computer science classes came looking for advice for
a research paper she's doing in her sophomore-level Shakespeare class.
(That should help tell you the level of reference we need.)  She has found
*Folk-lore of Shakespeare* by the Rev. T. F.  Thiselton Dyer, but doesn't
seem too excited by it.
 
Since I don't have too many of my computer science undergrads asking for
books on Shakespeare, I'd like to be able give this student a helpful
response!   We should encourage this kind of thing, no? :-) Thanks.
 
Tom

Subject:        The Noblest (Canadian) Parody....
 
Greetings, all!
 
I hope this fits in the parameters of discussion.....
 
While discussing pending term papers, it was observed that some will be
due on the Ides of March....I was instantly reminded of that bit from
Wayne & Shuster, in which Calphurnia says "I told him, Julie, don't go,
it's the Ides of March, beware already"....
 
Does anyone know if CBC is planning on releasing some or all of the
"timeless" parodies (ie. Julius Caesar {Rinse the Blood off my Toga?},
Shakespearean baseball)??   I found them wonderfully intelligent parodies,
and miss having weekly reruns.....
 
Thanks!!
