Subject:        director/actor Othello query
 
The following question came up in a class discussion (regarding
staging/blocking/directing/acting Othello) and I had no good answer.
 
When Othello says "Put out the light, and then put out the light," which of the
two lights (Desdemona or the lamp) does he intend to do first, which second?
 
There seems to be no indication at all in the text. Any tradition, precedent,
or suggestions elsewhere in the text or from character of Othello?

To all fellow SHAKSPERians:
 
This should be an easy one: I'm looking for the e-mail address of the Folger
Library, if one exists: specifically, I want to contact the person or persons
responsible for granting reproduction permission. If no e-mail address is
available, does anyone have the snail-mail address handy?  I am having a hard
time finding this info. at U of Regina.
 
Thanx in advance,
Noel Chevalier
