It doesn't qualify as "hypertext" in the formal electronic sense, but try
"The Three-Text Hamlet: Parallel Texts of the First and Second Quartos and
First Folio," edited by Paul Bertram and Bernice W. Kliman (AMS, 1991).

Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0605  Re: Whores, etc.
 
Michael Sharpston certainly has a valid point that whores may very well have
been voluble, scolding, etc. as their only line of defense.  Margaret Cavendish
(yes, noble, but not blind to women's conditions at various social levels)
writes in her _CCXI Sociable Letters_ (1664) something to the effect of,
"women, having no swords to uphold, use the only weapon available--their
tongues."
 
I wonder if the scold's bridle was used among the lowest classes (including
whores) in London as readily (it seems) as in other parts of the country.  (I'm
terribly sorry I'm drawing a blank as to the author of that informative essay
on _Shrew_ in a recent issue of _SQ_, "Bridling Scolds and Scolding Brides . .
. ."  Forgive my faulty memory.)

Subject:        ACTER at University of Richmond
 
Dear SHAKSPERians:
 
     A non-subscribing colleague here in the English Department
asked me to forward the following message to the list for the
benefit of those who might be in the Virginia area in October:
 
 
     A.C.T.E.R. at the University of Richmond
 
     "Actors from the London Stage," also known as ACTER ("A
     Centre for Theatre Education and Research"), will be in
     residence at the University of Richmond, Virginia, October
     18-24.  Hamlet will be performed at 8 p.m. on Tuesday,
     Friday, and Saturday, October 19, 22, and 23.  Admission is
     free and open to the public.  To guarantee a seat, telephone
     (804) 289-8271 between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m., EST, from October
     4.  For more information, telephone the English Department,
     (804) 289-8287.
 
     Actors touring with the group this fall are Sam Dale
     (playing Hamlet, Fortinbras, Barnardo), Jonathan Donne
     (Horatio, Laertes, Rosencrantz, Guildenstern), Miranda
     Foster (Gertrude, Ophelia), David Howey (Claudius, Ghost,
     Player King), and William Russell (Polonius, Gravedigger,
     Osric, Marcellus).  All have had extensive experience in
     British theatre, appearing with the Royal Shakespeare
     Company, the Royal National Theatre, the Leeds Playhouse,
     Birmingham Repertory, and others.
 
 
If you are in the area, the group's bare-bones, actorly
performances are very much worth a glance.

Re the Swedish TV Hamlet: Don't know where you can purchase it, but you can
visit it at the Folger, if you have a chance. And you're right: it's quite
terrific, from its insinuations of Gertrude's complicity in the murder, to
court business conducted while the nightshirted king washes up after royal
sex, to direct eye-contact between Hamlet and Claudius in "Now might I do it
pat," to the growing and almost insurmountable weariness of the Prince, to a
very unsettling final scene in which Horatio tries to tell Hamlet's story to
folks who are walking away and ignoring him, already entirely attached to
Fortinbras (shades of Lee Blessing's *Fortinbras*). Don't have director and
cast in front of me, but I'll put it up later if no one else does.

RE: Swedish production of the haunted Dane
 
I didn't see it, but the production of *Hamlet* referred to was
directed by Ingmar Bergman and was presented live at (I believe) the
Brooklyn Academy of Music.
