Am I the world's only owner of the out-of-print paperback, Shakespeare Was A
Computer Programmer by Jeffrey Holmes, Brunswick Press, Fredricton , New
Brunswick, Canada, 1975?  It's lovely and great fun. (My computer maven son
buys the whole enchilada.) I would like to buy new or used copies for some of
my uptight/authorship freak/somewhat humourless/albeit good friends/colleagues.
Responses duly appreciated.
 
Have all of you heard about the serious note posted on the backstage callboard
by the senior costumer at the Stratford Festival theatre? "All actors will wear
jockstraps including those with small parts."

In the last scene of the play, Kent refers to himself as Lear's servant by the
name of Caius. Does anyone know why Shakespeare might have chosen this name?

Subject:        Naive questions from the homoerotic front
 
I've been embroiled in a discussion that centers on Emily Dickinson's poetry as
lesbian, and while the argument seems convincing, it is countered by an
attitude that passionate exchanges between female friends were the norm in her
time.  Does that have anything to do with Shakespeare, or am I writing to the
wrong list?
 
No, it's just that the argument echoed what I remembered being taught about the
sonnets. So I was wondering;
 
1.   Is the current thinking still that sonnets to beautiful young boy have no
     sexual aspect?
2.   Are there other sonnets from Shakespeare's time that also fall into the
     same-sex/no-sex-intended category?
 
Back to lurking,   Jimmy
 
P.S.  About a year ago I saw a T-shirt that said, "Are you Shakespearienced?"
Since then, I've been unable to relocate it.  Can anyone help?

I'm a non-Equity actor, looking for summer work. If any of you out there on
SHAKESPER know of summer Shakespeare festivals that are having auditions soon,
could you let me know? I'm looking mainly in the SE (NC, SC, VA, GA, DC, TN) or
midwest (WI, IL, IA, MN, IN).
