Hardy and SHAKSPER members,
 
I am in the process of transferring and converting the SHAKSPER list archives
to HTML, for inclusion on an "Elizabethan/Jacobean Drama page" which will run
on sunsite.unc.edu.  I'd call it the Shakespeare Page, but there are already
several of those, and I see a need for a page to address other issues and
authors of the period.  I hope to have this done on or around Jan. 1, and to
include the ability to perform a full text search on the archives.
 
Currently, I'm working on the following:
 
* The SHAKSPER mailing list archives.
* Pointers to online texts and related Web pages.
* A description of all related mailing lists, possibly with hotlinks which
  would mail off the appropriate "subscribe" message when selected.
 
What else would be appropriate?  An area for contributed papers? I welcome your
suggestions.
 
Regards,
Paul

Have you seen Dympna Callaghan's chapter, "The Ideology of Romantic love: The
Case of Romeo and Juliet," in *The Weyward sisters: Shakespeare and Feminist
Politics* (Blackwell, 1994)? I think it's the best (most exciting, most
convincing, most illuminating) analysis I've read in many years.

Comment:        Re: SHK 5.1000  Assorted *Macbeth* Items
 
I was interested in Bernice Kliman's post regarding the NYC Macbeth because I
will be going to see it this weekend, and before I go I have a question.  A
local paper says that there is much nudity in the production, and that it is a
"most unusual take on an old play."  Can Ms. Kliman, or other subscribers in
the know, tell me more?
 
Thanks,
Patricia Palermo

Dear Matthew Hennerson:
 
Indeed in what now seems to have been my infancy (but may have been an early
dotage) I saw the Zefferelli MUCH ADO, I believe, in `65 (senility ?).  From
this far away vantage point, I remember Dogberry as very good, not because of
voices and accents but because he was accompanied by a kind of Sicilian street
band of musicians, who I thought were terrific.  I also remember statues coming
to life around the corners of fountains, and not much about acting at all.  But
I do remember thinking it was quite wonderful.
 
Did I dream it all?
 
Best,
Milla Riggio
