Subject:        The Chorus in Shakespeare's Plays
 
I have been sending SHAKSPER postings along to students in my Shakespeare
class.  One young woman, who is considering in a research project on ROMEO AND
JULIET, is wondering whether the scholars on our list might send her some
information or give her some things to think about concerning the role of the
chorus in Romeo & Juliet.  She has written a discussion-preparation sheet for
class and is now interested in writing a research essay on the chorus in
Shakespeare's plays.  She has noticed detected what she calls "a choral effect"
in Richard III.  As she says, "I'm interested in what Shakespeare was trying to
do by adding this effect."  How might we help this young student?
 
Address your replies to Sarah
 
Thank you,
 
Nick Clary
