Subject:        An Inquiry

I am beginning to take my first steps on that long, slippery slope down towards
a Ph.D.  My topic will be the gap between gender and sex in Shakespeare's work.
 I would like to concentrate on the cross dressing comedies, specifically "As
You Like It", "Two Gents" and "Twelfth Night".  It would be very helpful to me
if members of this list could refer me to useful source material on this or
closely related subjects.

Please e-mail to me at the address below.

I appreciate your help.

Shirley Kagan.

Subject:        Shakespeare and Classics

Information for all who are interested in Shakespeare's background in the
classics:

In mid-1995 I resigned the editorship of the New Variorum Shakespeare: *Julius
Caesar* in order to devote full attention to a supplement to my *Shakespeare
and the Classical Tradition: A Critical Guide to Commentary, 1660-1960* (U of
Minnesota Pr., 1968).  The database for this supplement has been established
for two years now, and is growing daily; I have two research assistants to
speed the work.  The relevant bibliographies have been surveyed through 1973
and entries are actually being written and entered in the database under the
same headings that governed the materials in the original book.  After my
retirement from teaching in May 1996, I'll devote major effort to the project.

*Books In Print* lists a supplement by someone else to my *Shakespeare and the
Classical Tradition* (s.v. that title) as from Garland, 1992.  No such book
exists; it is a ghost.

I naturally will be glad to hear from anyone who knows of a) significant
omissions from the original *Shakespeare and the Classical Tradition*; or of b)
 more recent scholarship on Shakespeare and the classics (in any language) that
is not listed in *PMLA*, *SQ*, or other major bibliographies; or c) relevant
work presently in progress.

                        Thanks.     John W. Velz
                                    English Department

Subject:        Linda Shenk's article

It has occurred to me that many members  of SHAKSPER would welcome some comment
or response from "theatre/performance" people to Linda Shenk"s article "Jane
Howell and Subverting Shakespeare: Where Do We Draw the Line? (Shakespeare
Bulletin, 13,4 (Fall 1995)33-35) I thought the article a very able presentation
of one side of the most vexing question facing theatre scholars. Don.
