Subject: Re: [MLA Teaching Through Performance]
About the MLA Teaching Through Performance Book. I am in the midst of
processing responses; it's terrifically exciting. We've set some kind
of MLA record for responses overall and particularly for those wanting
to contribute essays to teh book. This fact will force me to disappoint
some interested persons and it's slowing the process down a little,
since I'm trying to construct a book that will be genuinely useful but
not just a workbook. I'm also going to propose to the MLA that the
book be accompanied by an MS-Dos diskette that will contain much of the
quite wonderful material that was submitted to me in the way of syllabi,
course descriptions, exercises, and so forth -- all completely acknowledged
by name and academic affiliation. That in itself, if the MLA agrees, could
make the book really valuable to the teacher (and really give each of you
a copyright claim, if such is important, for your teaching exercises as

way and to tell you that each of you who responded can count on hearing
from me within the next few weeks about the shape of the book and the
fate of your contr4ibutions and suggestions. Meanwhile, if you simply
want to know whether your response reached me and what its preliminary
Once more, thanks to all of you and to Hardy and the list for helping to
propel this project beautifully through its initial stage!
P.S. the diskette suggestion came from a member of the Lois Potter/Lena
Orlin Teaching Shakespeare through Performance Institute in which I
participated at the Folger Library all last year and twice this year.
Such collaborative suggestions are in the main what has made this
project so far take a shape that appears almost intelligible! The
book itself grew out of this institute and will partly enshrine the
work we did there, but it has happily grown far beyond the limits
of its genesis. Again, thanks!
