Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0473  *H5*: Mountjoy in Performance
 
Ellen Edgerton's query about the growth of Mountjoy in modern production
triggers my memory about the "development" of the character between the Q1 and
the Folio texts.  But I've been too long away from the documents.  Again, Don
Foster's rare-word calculations point to this as one of Shakespeare's own
roles.  C'mon, Don Foster!

It has beee a while since I've read these two articles, but I remember that
both deal with Montjoy - especially the second one.
 
Scrimgeour, Gary J.  "The Messenger as a Dramatic Device in Shakespeare."
   _Shakespeare Quarterly_, Volume 19, Number 1 (Winter, 1968) 41-54.
   (_Shakespeare Index_ #F244)
 
Young, Daniel Lane.  "Honorable Heralds and Manipulative Messengers in
   Shakespeare's Second Tetralogy."  _CCTE: Conference of College Teachers of
   English of Texas.  Proceedings_, Volume 47 (September, 1982) 14-19.
 
Hope this helps.

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.

Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0472  Re: Computers and Shakespeare Studies
 
With my research associate Eric Johnson I'm developing a hypermedia CD-Rom on
the subject of Shakespeare Across Cultures that includes video extracts from
productions, interviews with scholars and theatre artists, promptbooks, and
of course text (the Folio, foreign languages, and literal translations).
 
I'd like to know if anyone has materials that I might use, either as archival,
"research only viewing" for a book, or as "non-theatrical" fair-use for an NEH
funded exhibition we're putting together for major public libraries and per-
forming arts spaces.
 
I just returned with material from the ROC, PRC, South Korea, and Japan.  Any-
one with information on Africa, India, or Latin America--or just interested in
the subject and project--please get in touch.
