Subject:        [ *Hamlet* Question]

Dear SHAKSPERians,

Some years ago I read and noted the following comment of a critic reflecting on
the proliferation of interpretations of Hamlet's actions.  He suggested that it
was time to stop speculating on whether the Prince was mad, and proposed
another question: 'Are the Comentators on Hamlet Really Mad, Or Only Pretending
to be?'

Unfortunately I didn't note down the author and work, and now I need to provide
a reference for the phrase.  Can anyone help?

In hope,
John Lee

Does anyone know of a list that would include scholars involved in research
into the works and biographies of the University Wits, specifically Robert
Greene, though Lodge, Peele, Kyd, Nashe, etc., are of interest as well? You can
reply to me directly, if you will. Thanks.

Subject:        Handfasting Illustrations

I wonder if anyone could help me.  I'm currently serving as dramaturg for our
University production of *Measure For Measure*, and I was asked by the director
to come up with an Elizabethan or Jacobean era drawing of a handfasting or
betrothal ceremony.  Despite consulting several sources I considered promising,
I haven't been able to come up with anything.  Could anyone out there suggest a
source for such an illustration?
