Subject: World Shakespeare Bibliography
[James Harner made this announcement on SHAKSPER a while back, but it bears
repeating. This message is a cross-posted from SHARP-L. --HMC]
I am forwarding a note received from Jim Harner which may be of interest to
some members of the above-named lists. If you have any questions, please
contact either me or Jim (his addresses are below).
An Appeal to All Shakespeareans:
The World Shakespeare Bibliography, sponsored by Texas A&M University and the
Folger Shakespeare Library, is preparing The World Shakespeare Bibliography on
CD-ROM 1900-Present, a comprehensive annotated bibliography of studies,
editions, translations, adaptations, and productions of Shakespeare from
throughout the world. The first disk, which will cover 1990-93, is scheduled
for release by Cambridge University Press in 1995. Updated disks, with both
current and retrospective coverage, will be issued annually.
Although the Bibliography staff and International Committee of Correspondents
regularly scan several hundred journals and newspapers, we can't hope to
identify everything published about Shakespeare or learn the details of every
production. Consequently, to increase the thoroughness of coverage and to
facilitate the preparation of the annual updates, I am asking for the
assistance of Shakespeareans worldwide. Please
Submit a complete list of your publications, scholarly and
popular (including book and production reviews), related to
Shakespeare. A photocopy of a portion of your curriculum
vitae would serve.
Send an offprint or photocopy of future essays and reviews as
soon as these are published. (Mailing labels can be
Send along clippings from local newspapers of reviews of
Shakespeare productions (and other items on Shakespeare).
Volunteer to annotate an occasional publication in languages
other than French, German, Spanish, Russian, or Italian.
Please send materials or offers of assistance to:
