Subject:        Ted Hughes' Goddess of Complete Being
 
I have just finished Ted Hughes' book Shakespeare and the Goddess of Complete
Being.  I found it infuriating and frustrating, tautological,  and often
spurious, egregiously lacking in footnotes, bibliography, index. I also found
it the most interesting, provocative, original and inspired book on Shakespeare
I've read in over a decade. I'm distressed to find the hardback version of the
book largely remaindered and unavailable in paperback except in the UK. I would
like to hear what others in the group have to say about this problematic text.

Could you please send me some brief info. re. CARDENIO.  I read about a
production in Pittsburgh--also heard that they were attributing it to
Shakespeare.  Could you give me any info. you may have on the play, or point me
in the right direction.  I mentioned the play the other day and everyone looked
at me like I was speaking a foreign language.  I didn't dream this, did I?
This play does exist, right?
 
Thanks.
Robert Caisley
