I was glad to hear that Bravo had shown Olivier's OTHELLO, which has one of
my favorite Iagos, but sad to have missed it.  I've been looking for a
video copy for ages.  You've all probably covered this ground before, but
is the Olivier production available on tape?  If so, whom do I contact to
order a copy?

Hello fellow interpreters of Shakespeare,
 
I am a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.  Right now I am taking a
performing Shakespeare course and we are reading plays like Twelfth Night, and
King Lear.  I was wondering if anyone on the net could shed some light on
Orsino's complex personality.  I am trying my best not to play Orsino's
character in a general way though is emotions seems somewhat general I have
never seen a performance of Twelfth Night and so I am clueless as to how others
have interpret this character.  In addition my professor does not recomend any
of the films.  When I endevor to play Orsino, I usually become confused,
simply because his intentions aren't that clear.  Yes, we know that he wants to
woo Olivia, but for what reasons.  It could be easily for money or for love.
In the beginning of Twelfth Night we see Orsino enters the stage saying "If
music be the food of love play on, give me excess of it." I see that here he is
comparing music to food, food that feeds love, what sort of love though.  Is
Orsino in love or could one play it either way?  I usually call upon my poetic
experience and read the speech like a sonnet, but that is too dry.  If anyone
has any suggestion, please write.  Thank you very much.

I have just spent some fruitless time on Gopher looking for the e-mail address
of the Oxford Text Archive. Can anyone provide me with the address, or, in lieu
of the e-mail address, the snail-mail address?
 
Thanks, Bill Godshalk
