Subject:        Resource Guide
 
Hello !
 
  I am a library science student, halfway through my MLS program, and I am
trying to compile a resource guide on Shakespeare - resources available on the
Internet.  (In another life, back in India, I used to teach English literature
in private college in Calcutta.)  I'm also trying to make list of OPACs which
have excellent collections of Shakespeare criticisms (the operative word here
is "trying").  Any help in this field will be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanking you in advance,
 
Sincerely,
Tilly Dutta

I'm reading and writing about Henry VI part 1 at the moment, and I'm wondering,
why does the Bishop of Winchester get such a bad rep?  Was he (as a historical
figure) a legendary ratbag, or is this anti-Catholic polemic, or just straight
anti-clericalism.  He's the King's uncle, yet Gloucester the protector sees him
as
 
        ...a most pernicious usurer
        Froward by nature, enemy to peace,
        Lascivious, wanton...
 
and much more besides (III.i.17-19).  Is there a new historicist out there who
can shed some light?
