Matter of fact, Laura Bohannon's essay was ORIGINALLY published in 1956, under
the title "Miching Mallecho: That Means Mischief," in a volume called _From the
Third Programme_, an "anthology" of BBC efforts. The version printed in
-Natural History_ a decade later is virtually identical except for the title
which became "Shakespeare in the Bush." I mention this for those whose
libraries don't stock _Natural History_ (incidentally, my notes say that it was
the September-October issue, not August-September, 1966), and for those who
like to go back to REALLY ORIGINAL versions. I also think this is a brilliant
essay, with lessons for anyone (the older and the more degrees held, the
better), not just undergraduates.
 
Happy digging. Cheers,
Naomi Liebler
