Re Robert Applebaum's mention of riots in Quebec (on the wrong day) I wonder
how an American scholar would recognize such activity.  I thought the U.S.
standard was that anything less than 50,000 people involved, with less than ten
fatal shootings, was either called recreation or normal street activity . .  .

In response to C. David Frankel's query about the genders of virtue, scorn, and
time.  Time is easy;--consistently and routinely figured as masculine in visual
and verbal iconography from early days; who knows not the old guy with the
scythe and the hourglass?  Virtue is a little more complicated; OED indicates
that the personified figure was sometimes masculine (no doubt in recognition of
the word's ultimate root, _vir_), sometimes feminine, perhaps by attraction to
the individual virtues--Faith, Hope, Charity, etc.--almost always represented
as females.  Scorn is hardest, perhaps because personified abstractions
typically have Latinate rather than Germanic names, and I know no fully
satisfactory Latin, French, or Italian translation for the English word.  The
closest I can come is Disdain (Lat. _dedegnare_), who like Virtue is sometimes
masculine (as in Faerie Queene 6.7.40-44) and sometimes feminine--Shakespeare
himself, at around the time he wrote Hamlet, was having Benedick address
Beatrice as "Lady Disdain" (Ado 1.1.118).
 
Scornlessly,
David Evett

There's another 15-minute _Hamlet_ besides Stoppard's, the one done by the
Reduced Shakespeare Company (RSC), very funny, which leads to a 5-minute
_Hamlet_, sidesplitting, which leads to a 1-minute _Hamlet_, fall out of your
seat wondering why laughing so hard hurts so much.

Could Don Foster be so kind as to advise why he believes Shakespeare played
other than the title role in Julius Caesar? I knew Decius, and Will didn't look
a bit like him.

Martin Green,
 
I would be interested to know what works you have written on the relationship
of Shakespeare and Southhampton.  Next semester, I plan on doing research on
the sonnets--especially those which I have always taken to refer to
Southampton.
 
Looking forward to hearing from you!
