Methuen published two quite useful books at a reasonable price:
 
        Richard Corballis. STOPPARD: THE MYSTERY AND THE CLOCKWORK (1984)
                [this includes a nice appendix, "II. Applied Stoppard:
                 The Adaptations," as well as a comprehensive bibliography]
 
        Malcolm Page, compiler. FILE ON STOPPARD (1986)
                [this includes excerpts from reviews of each of his plays
                 as well as a selected bibliography, briefly annotated
                 in many cases]
 
Students who have done seminar essays on Stoppard have found that the available
secondary resources are plentiful.  Scholars in the U.S. were quicker than were
British scholars to recognize Stoppard as a significant new playwright.

I feel like the "unfortunate Memphis man who kicked old Buddah's gong" in the
Hoagy Carmichael song "Hong Kong Blues." I just thought it might be
interesting to see if there are any linguistic deviations between Kate's last
speech and her prior speeches and the speeches of other "shrews."  I don't
care if Shakespeare wrote the scene or not.  I'm not trying to save the Bard
from any felt or believed misogynist leanings.  I just thought it might be
fun to investigate.

At Christmas time the final framing timbers were going up.  I'm not sure that
anything will be open yet.  If it isn't, there is always the nearby Bear Garden
Museum which will undoubtedly have exhibits on the progress.
