Dear Shaksperians,
 
Thanks to everyone who responded to my *Love's Victory* question; I've now read
the Brennan edition (in ucla's special collections) and have looked at the
Huntington ms.  I'm still trying to track down an electronic text.
 
I'm thinking of teaching it in a seminar this spring and I want my students to
have something they can read at home, take notes on and bring to class;
unfortunately, our special collections won't make a copy, though they will let
students use their materials (and indeed have been very cooperative and helpful
about it).  I may try to get a photocopy (as Don Foster suggested) from the
Huntington, if only to give my students a chance to get a second hand look.  An
etext would be ideal for some of the editorial/canon questions I hope we'll
address.
 
Has anyone tried teaching *Love's Victory*?  If so, I'd like to hear how it
went and what kinds of responses your students had.
 
Many Thanks!  Jan Stirm  (

Regarding the homophony of 'one' and 'own' in Shakespeare's day:
 
I happen to have at hand a copy of Fausto Cercignani's invaluable
*Shakespeare's Works and Elizabethan Pronunciation*, which gives the following
rhymes in Shakespeare's works as evidence for the pronuciation of 'one' (and
also 'none', which is historically 'no one') as rhyming with 'own'.  (The line
numberings Cergignani uses are from Kittredge's edition, but it shouldn't be
too hard to find the lines in a more familiar edition).
 
thrown / one (Cym. 5.4.59-61)
one / alone (MND 3.2.118-19)
            (PP 9.13-14)
            (R3 1.1.99-100)
            (Luc. 1478-80)
            (Son. 36.2-4)
                  39.6-8)
                  42.13-14)
            (Shrew 1.2.246-7)
alone / one (R&J 2.6.36-7)
            (Son. 105.13-14)
one / bone (LC 43-5)
           (LLL 5.2.331-2)
           (Ven. 293-4)
loan / one (Son. 6.6-8)
one / Scone (Mac. 5.8.74-5)
stone / thirty-one (Mac. 4.1.6-7)
 
own / none (Per. 1.pr.27-8)
none / alone (AWW 2.3.134-5)
             (MM 2.1.39-40)
             (TN 3.1.171-2)
alone / none (1H6 4.7.9-10)
groan / none (2H6 3.1.221-2)
moan / none (2H6 3.1.221-2, Q version)
