Subject:        Henry and French
RE the discussion about Henry's French:  I'm embarrassed to admit that I know
of a splendid essay on the various languages in that play.  The essay is by
Alan Powers and titled "'Gallia and Gaul, French and Welsh':  Comic Ethnic
Slander in the Gallia Wars."  It will appear in a collection I'm editing,
_Acting Funny: Comic Theory and Practice in Shakespeare's plays_ (hence the
embarrassment -- I don't want to be tooting my own horn, but the piece really
is good).
The collection is from a Shakespeare Association seminar and Fairleigh
Dickinson will publish it this fall.
