Question:  Are the 12,000 pages in machine-readable form?
 
If they are, I don't know if I have a good answer.   (If they aren't, I
*know* I have an answer, but not a good one!)  I'm interested in the sort
of questions scholars want to about text using machine-readable texts and
search strategies.  I'm particularly interested in finding allusions,
intertextual references, etc. between texts using computers.

I'm trying to recall where I saw an article about this subject . . . COLLEGE
ENGLISH perhaps?  Sorry I can't get closer.  In another area, people might like
to know that THE VIDEO CATALOG (800-733-2232) has for sale the Brannaugh HENRY
V, and two notable RSC productions: Trevor Nunn's ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA with
Janet Suzman as a delicious, sizzlingly erotic Queen of Egypt, and Jonathan
Miller' s production of MERCHANT OF VENICE with Laurence Olivier, Joan
Plowright.  They  go for $19.95 each.  For anyone able to come to NYC, Michael
Langham's Stratford Ontario production of two summers ago, TIMON OF ATHENS,
with Brian Bedford playing Timon, will be here from mid-October to early
December.  I saw it in Canada on the smallest of the Stratford stages, and it
was magnificent.
