Subject:        W. W. Greg's SHAKESPEARE FIRST FOLIO
 
Today, I decided to get my own copy of Greg's book on the Folio, and it seems
that I've waited too, too long. It's out of print. Does anyone know of a
second-hand copy for sale?
 
I've been told that there is an online bulletin board for the second-hand book
trade. Does anyone have the address?
 
Thanks.
 
Yours, Bill

Subject:        The Masculine Value of Revenge?
 
Bernice Kliman recently used the phrase "the masculine value of revenge." And
as I pondered the phrase, it became more and more problematic. Is there a
"feminine value of revenge"? Or is all revenge gendered male? Isn't revenge a
mammalian trait practiced by both male and female mammals? Perhaps reptiles,
etc. also practice revenge. Is revenge simply retaliation? Paying back in kind?
Or must revenge be tied to a concept or ideology?
 
Is "peace" also a "masculine value"?
 
Questioningly yours, Bill
