Many thanks to Hamlet Godshalk for his note about the on-line concordance
which I for one will certainly be having a look at.   Belated thanks also
for his note about the new King John bibliography.  Of course, the
chances of it being marketed in Australia are close to zero.  Just remind
me, Bill, where can I find it on-line?

Re: Shakespeare Concordances
 
Having done extensive work with Shakespeare concordances, I should like to
put in a good word for good old Bartlett, which (apart from electronic ones)
I have consistently found the most useful. He may have omitted some
collocations, he may have made some mistakes (try to imagines his Victorian
card index), but he actually gave some thought to what he was doing, unlike
the computer. Bartlett therefore lists various forms of the same verb under
the same heading. He has entries for phrasal verbs. Computer concordances,
on the other hand, do not list words, just combinations of letters.
You may find Bartlett in your library, unless they have removed it in the
mistaken belief that computer-generated concordances have made it obsolete.
