Does anyone know the availability of fonts for wordprocessing (truetype,
postcript or otherwise) which print out in an authentic Elizabethan typeface?
This is to say, with a long medial "s", ligatures for "t-c" and others, as well
as a functional long tilde for m's and n's? A thorn (the "ye") would be useful
as well.  I have had no luck finding such a face in traditional sources, and
wonder if anyone on line has a more refined availability.  Thank you

To readers of SHAKSPER: this is a shot in the dark, but I'm nearly at the end
of my proverbial rope. I'm editing a collection of criticism, and one piece I'd
like to use is by Prof. Susan Corey Everson. Her essay on "Toni Morrison's Tar
Baby, A Resource For Feminist Theology" appeared in the Journal of Feminist
Studies in Religion. Since the editors do not hold copyright, I need to locate
Prof. Everson to request reprint rights. Have so far been unable to find her.
Does anybody out there know where I might reach her? For reasons of privacy,
you could contact Prof. Everson and ask her to write or call ME.  My address is
English Dept, Trinity University, San Antonio, TX 78212, phone 210-736-7517.
Thanks for any help.

Subject:        Q: "The Marcellus Version"
 
Hi, SHAKSPERians,
 
I'm looking for a poem, and I hope that you can help me track it down despite
my embarrasing lack of hard knowledge about it.
 
It's called "The Marcellus Version," and it's a fanciful dramatic monolog
spoken by the actor who played the minor role of Marcellus in _Hamlet_ and who
has been posited as one of the sources for the memorial reconstruction that
became the "Bad" Q1 of the play. I'm sorry that I don't remember the author,
but if anyone has run across it I'd love to find it again. (I foolishly lent my
only copy away.)
 
Thanks!
Jennifer

Subject:        FESTE
 
I am writing an article on Feste in TWELFTH NIGHT for a book on clowns in
history and literature.  If you have any favorite essays (or perhaps paragraphs
about Feste in longer works), I'd appreciate hearing about them in case I have
somehow missed them.  And if you have seen any notable stage interpretations
that open up interesting facets of Feste, I'd also appreciate hearing about
them.  (I have either seen or done archive studies on all the Festes at the
Stratford Ont. Festival.)
 
Please send responses to me at "

Further note:  if you happen to live in the Syracuse NY area, Syracuse Stage is
doing a lavish production of TN, costumed in Middle Eastern styles; lots of
energy and imagination, and plenty of attention to the play's dark side -- the
"dark house" scene is like something from Dante's Inferno.
