Subject:        Richard III
 
I'm curious to what people think about Richard III as a character in
Shakespeare and Richard III as a character of fact.  Why did Shakespeare
make him out to be such a monster?  Was he not one of England's better
kings?  How has history affected his character in Shakespeare?
 
I was recently talking to someone who said that the ruler at the time
that Shakespeare wrote it, (was it Elizabeth?) greatly influenced his
writing and politically it was more beneficial to slander Richard's
name.  Comparisons in the monarchy I guess.
 
Please, anyone, share your ideas.  What do you think about the whole
thing?
 
Chantal

Subject:        Study Leave
 
I am a lecturer in Theatre Studies planning a study leave for the first half of
1995 (January to July). My plan is to visit the U.K., Canada and U.S.A.. My
twin objectives are to discuss pre-production analysis of text with
professional or university-based directors, and where possible to observe
related rehearsals. This is in association with a research project I am
conducting into current practice and trends in  the production process.
 
I would be grateful for any assistance or co-operation in developing an
itinerary for this project. In return, I would be happy to exchange
lectures/seminars etc. on Australian Theatre in general, and the plays of
Patrick White in particular (my Ph.D. on WhiteUs plays is due to be submitted
this year)
 
My interest is not confined to Shakespeare, but includes all theatre which is
substantially text-based.
 
Please reply direct to me.
