"If she and I be pleased, what's it to you?" "But what a fool I am to chat with
you/When I should bid good morrow to my lovely bride" "Carouse full measure to
her maidenhead,/Be mad and merry, or go hang yourselves."  Petruchio's contempt
for the society that has shamed Kate seems beyond dispute -- "If thou
account'st it shame, lay it on me."
 
As to plays in which a low number of copulatives make it to bed, in *Love's
Labors Lost* the score is no better than 0 for 8.  That's a  breathtaking bit
of genre defiance by Shakespeare.

Bill Godshalk was wondering about Shakespeare and Gillyflowers.  You may want
to have a peek at Spenser's *Amoretti*, #64 for what seems to be a fairly
conventional use of this flower as an image of sensual love.

The program was aired on PBS sometime in the Spring or Fall of !993. PBS
should be able tp provide transcripts and/or copies.

Dear Leslie,
 
The "Trial of Hamlet" was organized for the benefit of The Shakespeare Theatre
in Washington, D.C.  Hamlet's case was performed in the Supreme Court Chambers
with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Anthony Kennedy presiding.  Most of the
justices are frequent patrons of the Shakespeare Theatre.  The event was
recorded on C-Span and questions concerning a tape may be directed to The
Shakespeare Theatre (202) 547-3230. I'm not sure if one is available, but the
office could answer your questions.
