Grouping the plays in various categories is a handy way to keep track of them.
And I am always fascinated in how others group plays that I never think share
many of the same characteristics. Most difficult, for me at least, is fitting
Measure for Measure in with the other "comedies."
 
I believe that there is merit in the idea that Shakespeare had essentially
exhausted the structure of the comedy, whose final marriage scene neatly
wrapped up the action. Certainly Isabella's triumph at the end of the play is a
personal one, and the marriage proposal of the Duke seems such an inadequate
response or reward.
 
So I would be curious where John Perry would slip in M4M in his groupings. I
would group Merchant with M4M simple because they share a sense at the end of
the play that things are not neatly resolved, but remain troubled.

Thanks to Bill Godshalk and Piers Lewis for their comments on s. 112.  The
divergent tracks of their thoughts clearly illustrate the sonnet's difficulty
though I too prefer the simpler interpretation of "ore-greene."  I also wonder
if in line 8 that "or changes right or wrong" could be "o'er changes right or
wrong"; thus keeping them as nouns rather than verbs.

The slightest of all corrections.  While Theatre Perspectives International is
indeed an excellent on-line publication, I don't think it was in fact, as James
Zeiger suggests, the first on-line theatre journal.  The first that purports to
cover ALL of theatre, yes.  But I believe the first issue of *Didaskalia:
Ancient Theatre Today* preceded TPI by a week or two.  And there may be
others...
 
A good idea, though!
