My first posting to this list:  Hello to you all.  I wonder if someone can
give me a suggestion on where to look for a list of phrases that
Shakespeare originated that have come into common use in our language--so
common that we have no inkling of the source. As a teacher of Shakespeare
to those who have little or no interest in him, I try to make a case for
how much Shakespeare they know without knowing it, and I'd love to have a
list of expressions to dazzle them with.  If there is no such collected
source, I'd be delighted to receive private e-mail notes on your personal
favorites.  Thanks so much.

I've been reading through the Tempest and I want to do it for the Fall
production at my university.  However, the vanishing banquet scene has got me
boggled.  I want to do the play in the round and I am curious if any one has
seen this play done in the round and if so how was this scene done.  I was
thinking of doing a blackout and when the lights come back up the people are
either asleep or frozen...I'm not sure.  Any suggestions would be
appreciated...

A former graduate student called me the other night and asked me what I thought
about the addition of a third murderer in III.iii. We talked, among other
things, about the plausibility of Macbeth himself being the newcomer.  What
have you playgoers observed in the treatment of that scene.  Truthfully, I have
never paid it any heed so I can't remember what I have seen over the years.
