Subject:        Help on "Goodnight Desdemona" Allusion
 
A humble request for help with an allusion in "Goodnight Desdemona":  (Blair
Kelly -- thanks for recommending the Washington production, which is indeed
excellent).  Something about having heads I think down one's front, and
bleeding green blood.  The green blood is certainly a reference to the green
ink the spinster university teacher used, but what is all this about the
heads??
 
Thanks in advance.
