I, too, found John Drakakis' volley on puns dracoconian (pun intended); a
temperate reminder of the possibility of our projecting modern interpretations
on any particular term (e.g. content/content) and the corresponding
responsbility tocheck available linguistic resources (dictionaries,
concordances) before using the interpretation in an argument would seem to have
been sufficient--and avoided overstating the instability of early modern
English.
 
Temperately,
Dave Evett

Dear Fellow SHAKSPER-eans,
 
A very hearty thanks to all of you who have contributed your thoughts in
response to my request for advice about graduate study!  I really appreciate
the moral support you've shown in addition to the more practical assistance.
All the advice has been very good, and the more I get, the better, as far as
I'm concerned.
 
As far as my own background goes, I'm afraid my first posting was a little
confusing.  I received my B.A. in English from U.C.-Berkeley in May of 1994,
but I am not currently enrolled in the M.A. program here.  I decided to take a
year or two off from school, and I have been working as a staff member here at
the university.  As an undergraduate, literary theory was not a part of the
standard curriculum, so my request for helpful books and advice in that regard
is to aid in making up for some of those deficiencies.
 
Again, thanks to all of you who have responded to my request.  I really appre-
ciate it, and I will keep you posted as to what happens.
 
Sincerely,
Erika Lin
