I have a new problem.  I wanted to a paper on Agnes Beaumont and St. John of
the Cross and I was told that I would have to do some research into mysticism
and medieval religious poetry.  I have already been given the name of W. H.
Auden.  Dr. Camden, a professor here at Kent State, has written a very good
book on Agnes Beaumont's "Persecutions". I don't really want to abandon this
topic--although, I may have to for I am in a Dickens' class which requires we
read nine novels of his this semester.  I realize I cannot possibly be expected
to know everything there is to know on mysticism but, I'd rather be lead to a
safer path to begin research if at all possible.

Let me know!

Just a quick question for the list--

I have been told that Canadian singer, Loreena McKennitt, has a home page.  I
was hoping that someone might know how I can find information about this--being
new to this "computer stuff."  McKennitt is known for taking lyrics from
by-gone days of yore and putting them to some of the most stirring melodies.
Because of her studies, she has given me new insights into Shakespeare--into
medieval and renaissance literature.  This recent adventure she started me on
was into the poem I asked about before, St John of the Cross's "Dark Night of
the Soul."  Her previous album, "The Mask and Mirror" in itself is a study and
I would like to find out more about its conception.

Please help if you can--
Thanks,
Susan Mather  (
