Does anyone know where I can get hold of a copy of the 1920's German film Romeo
and Juliet in the Snow (Romeo und Julia im Schnee) directed by Ernst Lubitsch?

Subject:        Elizabethan-Jacobean drama texts

Are there any good, new Elizabethan-Jacobean drama anthologies available in the
U.S?  I usually use either Fraser and Rabkin's 2-vol *Drama of the English
Renaissance* (Macmillan) or Brooke and Paradise's *English Drama, 1580-1642*
(Heath) and supplement them with single-volume versions of one or two plays.
But I remember, some years ago, responding to a questionnaire from a publisher
(Norton?) who said they were planning a new anthology. I don't know if anything
ever came of that.

Also, a good one-volume edition of Sidney's *Apology*?

Thanks in advance.

Subject:        Screenplays of *Hamlet*

Hello Shakespeareans:

Does anyone know where I can get copies of the screenplays of Hamlet used in
the films with Laurence Olivier (Olivier's screenplay) and with Mel Gibson
(Dyson Lovell's screenplay)? I want to use them in a high school class, and I
will use only Act III scene 4, Hamlet confronting Gertrude in her room. The
University of Virgina library (closest to me) does not have either.  Any leads
will be appreciated.

Subject:        Questions in the Tragedies

Dear SHAKeSpeareans,

Presently I am writing a PH.D. dissertation about questions in the 'great'
tragedies of Shakespeare at the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. The analysis
is primarily based on linguistic research about questions, and, as you probably
know, there is very much you can find out about dramatic texts when you take
linguistic theories and apply them to the plays. However there has been very
little literary criticism about this subject at least concerning Shakespeare's
plays. I have found only the following books and articles:

- Goldberg, S.L.: "Answering and Questioning", in: S.L. Goldberg: An Essay on
King Lear. London, 1973.
- Hallett, Charles A.: Staging Shakespeare's Dramatic Question:
Intensifying Techniques in Act Two of King Lear", in Shakespeare Bulletin,
9, iii (1991), S. 5-12.
- Levin, Harry: The Question of Hamlet. New York, 1959.
- Thomas Moisan: "Repetition and Interrogation in Othello : What needs this
iterance?" or, "Can anything be made of this?", in: Othello. New
Perspectives. Ed. by Virginia Mason Vaughan and Kent Cartwright.
Rutherford, 1991, S. 48-73.
- Nowottny, Winifred M.T.: "Lear's Questions", in: Aspects of King Lear.
Ed. by Kenneth Muir and Stanley Wells. Cambridge, 1982. s. 35-42.
- Wikberg, Kay: Yes-No Questions and Answers in Shakespeare's Plays. A
Study in Text Linguistics. Abo, 1975. (Acta Academiae Abonensis, Ser. A
Humaniora, Vol. 51, Nr. 1)

So I would like to ask you SHAKeSpereans if you know anything about further
criticism concerning this subject. You can also send an e-mail to

>This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.<.

Additionly I would be very interested in comments and ideas about questions
in Shakespears tragedies.

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours
