Subject:        Old Athenian Law;

Concerning "you are as a form in wax / By him imprinted" (1.1.49-50), I'll
speculate that the sentence relates to the common Renaissance idea that females
were matter (cf. Latin "mater") or substance, and males were "form."  So women
provided the substance of the baby, and men provided the form. As recall, Edgar
Wind discusses the concept in *Pagan Mysteries.*  So in *MND* "wax" is the
female substance, the form of which was printed by Egeus.

Yours, Bill Godshalk

Comment:        RE: SHK 7.0106  Qs: ISA

Joanne Whalen asked about registration materials for the ISA which meets April
7-14 in Los Angeles. I spoke with Nancy Hodge, Exec. Director of the SAA, who
told me that the materials are late in coming because the International
co-ordinators (in England) hadn't yet sent in THEIR part of the packet. Nancy
expects them next week and will shortly thereafter get all the pertinent stuff
out to everyone. Hang in there. It'll soon be in the mail.
