>> What I want to know is if the new Shakespeare/Gopher files are available
>> via FTP anywhere.
 
Many gopher sites are also open to anonymous ftp, including sites containing
the works of Shakespeare, such as othello.admin.kth.se.  Shakespeare at
othello.admin.kth.se is found in /gopher-data/Blandat/Shakespeare.  There are
likely US sites that are open to anonymous ftp as well.  A VERONICA search on
"Shakespeare" will probably turn them up.
 
The gopher program itself makes provision for downloading. After retrieving a
file, the "q" command will bring up a menu that includes "s" for save.  This
save command will save the current gopher file to the directory from which you
invoked the gopher program.  This method is somewhat more tedious than ftp
because the plays are split into acts and you must retrieve and then save each
act, whereas with ftp, you can get an entire play with one command, the "mget
*" command.
 
This information is valid for UNIX systems and gopher clients.  Your mileage
may vary on other systems.  Contact me if you have any difficulty.

SHAKSPEReans,
 
Just yesterday, I discovered a gopher server from which entire plays can be
mailed to your accounts.  I learned of the site from another list to which
I belong: ELENCHUS.  Here is that posting:

>The literature is at least available through gopher access (probably also

>After entering the U of N.D. gopher, choose 3. University of Notre Dame
>Information, then 7. Library and Infromation Resources, then 2. Access to
>Electronic Books where you will find three different e-book projects and the
>second one is the Eris project.
 
>Other than the classics I mentioned above, the project also has Augustine's
>Confessions as well as Plotinus' Enneads (6 books).
 
>Have a happy journey.
