Subject:        Elizabethan Pronunciation
 
Could someone please recommend an audio cassette or videotape that demonstrates
varieties of Elizabethan pronunciation, preferably with lines from
Shakespeare's plays?  I have looked in Kokeritz and Dobson but don't trust my
tongue to render the sounds aright.  I apologize if this rehashes previous
discussions.  Thanks, Tom Hodges

Does anyone out there know of any recording company that has done the plays on
CD.  I have a few tapes of various plays but I now have a CD player and would
like to free up some space (I think CD versions would save quite a bit of room
since it is probable that an entire play would fit on a single CD.)  Any
information would be appreciated.

Subject:        Hamlet and Renaissance Culture
 
I'm going to teach an interdisciplinary course called "*Hamlet* and Renaissance
Culture" during our Spring Term (it's a 4-week term during which students take
just 1 class).  We'll read *Hamlet* and some contemporary English and
continental drama, and various colleagues from art, music, philosophy, and
theatre will come into the class to talk about *Hamlet* and their own
perspectives on early modern culture.  But I'm also looking for a book that
will help students think about the various threads of Renaissance culture,
something that will illuminate and raise questions without reducing the
discussion to Western Civ. cliches.  Any ideas?  Roland Mushat Frye's *The
Renaissance HAMLET* (Princeton, 1984) may be such a book, but I'm not sure. Any
ideas?  Any experiences with similar interdisciplinary courses?  Thanks.
