Subject:        Shakespeare on CD ROM

I quote a message written by a man whose first language is not English. He is
very interested in literature, but finds Shakespeare difficult to understand.

  "Would it not be great if we can buy a CD with the play on,
   you can stop it, click on for an explanation. ( for block-heads who need
   one..<G>).  Well.. that would be the ticket!"

First, if such an educational tool exists (an electronic Arden edition), I
would like to know. If not, the idea is free to any with entrepreneurial
leanings.

Does anyone know of an abridged version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream?"  Either
published in book form, or available somewhere on the Net?

My wife requires a shorter version for use with secondary school students.

Subject:        Middle Men and Money

Does anybody know of any good (recent or old) studies on middlemen in
Shakespeare's comedies? By Middlemen I do not simply mean Pandarus or Don Pedro
(both ineffectual), but also Antonio's money, the fairy/ love juice seem to
function like middlemen. And though this can be a mere plot device, it seems
that there is also something else going on. I guess I'm thinking of things in
terms of the last half of THE WINTER'S TALE, and the "innocence" of Florizel
and Perdita is highlighted by, among other things, their refusal to "come to
the pedddlar" for "money's a meddler" and in this they are contrasted with the
lovers in just about every other comedy I mentioned (I'm purposely ignoring
AYLI and 12N for the time being).Any comments, or suggestions for further
reading, would be appreciated.

Hello everybody,

Does anybody know if I can find a good production of any of Shakespeare's plays
in NYC ? Tell me when and where if possible.

Thank you and have a good day
Jean-Sebastien
