Subject:        Doubling in Lear
 
I would like to know if antone has seen productions (other than that with Judy
Davis already mentioned) where the Fool and Cordelia are played by the same
actress.  Also, was this doubling standard (if there is such a thing) when the
play was performed in the early 17th C?  Any thoughts on this topic would be
appreciated.
 
Thanks,

Comment:        Re: SHK 5.0407 Qs: MIT/Stanford Project; Hand's *Henry VI*
 
I didn't see this production but have a tangentially related question: you're
interested in Henry VI; I'm currently interested in King John.  Is there some
hypertext or Veronica-style system whereby I can search through the discussion
on Shakesper over the last (what is it) six years, and pull out the threads
which relate to King John?
 
I got a very long summary of posts listed in chronological order when I joined
the list, but it should be a relatively simple task to make this huge (and
getting huger) repository of free associations on Shakespearian matters
available to the group on a meta-search basis.
 
What do you think - or have I failed to grasp a potential which is already
there?

[Editor's Note:  John Knight raises an interesting question.  The five indexes
to which he refers are intended for searching, but there is indeed an
alternative.  One feature of the LISTSERV software is a DATABASE function. I've
had the documentation for years but just have not had the time to try to figure
it out and digest it down into a simple procedure for members to use.  If there
is a SHAKSPERean with the time, inclination, and interest to study the DATABASE
documentation and produce a set of instructions for its use, please contact me
and I'll willingly and readily forward the material.  --Hardy]
