Dear Fellow Shaksperians,
 
Does anyone have a transcript of Mary Wroth's play *Love's Victory*?  Or
suggestions for getting hold of a copy?
 
Thanks,  Jan Stirm   (

I am curious if any fellow Shakespearians know about the interchangeability of
the word "owe" for "own" in Shakespeare's days---if , for instance, there's any
IDEOLOGICAL implications  to it---The idea seems attractive, and may point
towards a different attitude of ownership--that is seen elsewhere in
Shakespeare's plays---Yet, I have found no studies or articles on this
yet---and maybe I'm reading too much into it-- Can anybody point me towards
anything? Thanks, chris stroffolino
