After reading that Shakspeare often acted a small role in his plays, my high
school students are curious as to what role he may have played in Macbeth,
which we are currently studying.  If anyone can tell us, please feel free to
send the answer directly to me.  We would also like any other information about
his acting.
 
Thanks,
Frances Reed

I know that this is somewhat out of the area of this list but my lurking about
has uncovered the fact that there is an immense amount of arcane and out of
area knowledge out there. I have a friend who is  doing as a dissertation a
hypertext edition of Anne Killegrew's poems.  In one of the poems Killegrew has
a speaker comment on the  "late laws against rape and incest."  I have been
unable to track down anything specific on rape/incest laws in the mid to late
1600s. Does anyone know of any specific laws in the 1650s, 60s, or 70s?  Does
anyone have an idea where to look?  Perhaps it would be best to answer directly
to me rather than to clutter the list with information not germane to the
general topic of discussion, viz. Shakespeare.  I would greatly appreciate any
information, comments or suggestions.  Thanks very much.

I'm looking for a secondary teacher who'd like to investigate the possibility
of collaborating on an e-mail partner approach to studying either the comedies,
individual comedies, Hamlet, or perhaps even Romeo & Juliet.  I teach at Choate
and I've recently worked on a hypertext multimedia Hamlet with some success.
Right now, I've got my freshmen going with text, vocab, and questions for
Midsummer Night's Dream on disks.  Has anyone done stuff like this, and do you
have pointers for me?  Finally, I'm planning on showing the Central Park film,
with William Hurt as Oberon.  That's my favorite, ahead of the ponderous BBC
and the silly old B&W with Mickey Rooney as Puck and Cagney as Bottom. Are
there any other good ones out there?  Thanks.  Dave
