Subject:        Shakespeare "Editions" on HyperCard
 
The editions that Judy Boss asks about are transcriptions into HyperCard
of the Globe text (1864, rev 1911), long out of copyright, of course.
They are nicely presented with each scene on a separate card, and the
layout of the original preserved and easy to read.
 
The designer offers the text in the public domain, and allows all users
to distribute the stacks as they wish. There are no notes, but they can
be used to provide a basic electronic text.

I, too, have managed to dig up (some) of the Hypercard Shakespeare, and I
corresponded (briefly) with the man responsible - who is not, by the way, a
Shakespearean scholar, just a fellow addict. He is more than happy to
receive advice suggestions etc, as his blurb accompanying each text says.
I have found them very useful, if only for one reason - they beat the hell
out of paying (currently) A$80 per play for a concordance. It's a little
time consuming to use them in this way but I have been told that anyone who
knows how to program Hypercard (not me) can work a 'count' facility into
them (if that's what you need).
 
Would it be possible for these texts to be added to the list of SHAKSPER
resources?

[It would clearly be possible to add these texts to the SHAKSPER Fileserver;
I simply need more information about their availability.  Perhaps you could
contact me privately with the appropriate information.  --hmc]
