Thanks to Jean Peterson for her information on the "rule of thumb."  I'd be
grateful for any other early references to the rule.

Charles Marowitz wrote a version of Shrew which played in Los Angeles about
eight years ago, in which Petruchio's financial need for a rich wife was
stressed; he raped her on the table on which she ate her meagre meal; and
Baptista shoved his elbow into her bruised body, prompting her while she
desperately tried to remember a learned text at the end. It was counterpointed
with scenes from a modern abusive relationship.

Tom Dale Keever should have been in London last week, when an immense downpour
flooded several Tube stations, to great national relief and the baptism of many
a wellie. God is not mocked.

The truth to tell, when I asked the question about titlepage indications of
genre, I was expecting a vigorous negative response, basically because I don't
find titlepages very helpful in determining genre. And I think this observation
suggests that literate Renaissance publishers, correctors of the press, and
readers did NOT pay much attention to generic distinctions. If they had been
super-sensitive to these distinctions, they would have been more careful in
distinguishing the genre of the plays they were printing, selling, and reading.
 
Yours, Bill Godshalk
