Subject:        Adriana
 
I would like to post a question to the members of SHAKESPER regarding an acting
question. My roommate, a very strong and talented actress, is about to begin
rehearsals for the role of Adriana in COMEDY OF ERRORS. The two of us have been
engaged in several conversations about how she can portray Adriana in a
likeable manner. Any hints on qualities or characteristics that can be employed
so that Adriana is not perceived as a shrew would be greatly appreciated. If
you would like to post replies directly to me, please feel free to do so.
 
Gratefully,
Sarah

Subject:        Endymion bibliography
 
Any Lyly scholars out there?  I've been asked to compile a bibliography of five
(and only five) sources on *Endymion*, with the following guidelines: sources
should deal with the play, as opposed to Lyly in general on the one hand or
just a few lines on the other--books about Lyly are OK, provided they provide
specific discussion about the play; sources must be in English, generally
available even outside major research libraries, and comprehensible to the
General Reader (first cousin to The People, to whom Branagh is alleged to
address his films).
 
It's been a while since I really spent any time on Lyly, so my list is
currently dominated by pre-1980 stuff.  The only two sources I'm sure to
include on my list are the books by Hunter and Saccio.  Bevington's *Tudor
Drama and Politics* is a possibility, as are Sallie Bond's article in SEL 14,
Jocelyn Powell's article in Brown & Harris's *Elizabethan Theatre*, Saccio's
article in Hibbard's *Elizabethan Theatre*, and Peter Weltner's article in ELR
3.  I've just done an MLA search on newer material, but haven't yet tracked
down the sources themselves.  Any suggestions for newer readings, or comments
on the above, greatly appreciated.  As you can see, I'm pretty much avoiding
the whole topical allegory theme, except as touched on by critics who see
larger perspectives.
 
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
