I just finished a recent novel that may be of interest to fellow SHAKSPEReans.
It's *The Shakespeare Transcripts* by Mark P. Friendlander, Jr. (a lawyer) and
Robert W. Kenny (a former academic who taught English history), published by Ox
Bow Press, Woodbridge, Connecticut, 1993. The plot has to do with the
contemporary discovery of a summons related to a Shakespeare/Francis Bacon
court case regarding (what else?) who wrote the plays. You get both the
contemporary seekers (a dashing young male grad student, an intelligent--and of
course, attractive--young woman attorney, a bad guy senior faculty member) plus
the Elizabethan tale with our Will plus his attorney who has a (you guessed it)
amazingly intelligent and beautiful daughter who would have been a lawyer if
only it had been possible then. No appearances by the Queen (sorry about that,
Imagining Gloriana compilers). Not great literature, but fun weekend reading.
Happy autumn to those in the southern hemisphere! (I realized after posting my
last message which contained spring greetings that I was being
hemispherist--oops!)
 
Regards to all, Chris Gordon, University of Minnesota

Subject: 5.0274 Q: Line-endings
Comment:        Re: SHK 5.0274 Q: Line-endings
 
In response to Howard Hill on Shakespeare as his own (and his actors') vocal
director in his use of line-endings: George (Ted) Wright takes up this line of
argument in _Shakespeare's Metrical Art_ (University of California Press) and
also in an essay called "Language that Vanishes, Language that Keeps" (as
closely as I remember it) in _The Elizabethan Theatre XII_ (1993).
