Subject:        Volpone in _Volpone_

I am preparing a short essay on the character Volpone in Ben Jonson's play
_Volpone_.  In the essay, I want to indicate the most important and/or hotly
debated issues concerning this character -- the issues that arise most
frequently in critical discussions and classroom dialogue.  I've already
compiled quite a lengthy list, but I'd be grateful for any further suggestions.
 One obvious topic, for instance, is what to make of Volpone's punishment at
the end of the play.  Another is the degree to which he is or isn't a
sympathetic or appealing character.  Since many people on this list undoubtedly
have read, taught, and thought about the play (and seen productions), I welcome
any feedback. Thanks!  -- Robert C. (Bob) Evans --

I'd be very grateful if someone on the list could give me some titles of
Shakespeare CD-Roms like one that came up in my Austen list: MUCH ADO ABOUT
SHAKESPEARE. Also include, when possible the address in USA where I might place
an order from Argentina. If prices are included, the info would be complete!
Thank you very much.
