[SHAKSPEReans,
 
I normally do not post questions from non-members, but I just could not
pass this one up.  If you respond, please do so directly to CENTRALLEE@
INS.INFONET.NET.   --HMC]
 
My name is Deena Parker and I am in sixth grade. I am doing research about
William Shakespeare. I am very interested about his inspirations for his plays.
Mainly Romeo and Juliet, MacBeth, A Midsummer Nights Dream,etc. If anyone has
any information about this I would really appreciate it. Send it to my e-mail
address. Thank you!

Just a query. Why is Polonius called Polonius? In the source he is called
Corambus. Is this the first Polish Joke?
