Florence Amit--that was a very good point!  I hadn't thought about
Shakespeare's audience--hadn't taken that into consideration. Actually though,
I have been telling my composition class about this "high level" Shakespeare
discussion and truly, I have heard some real whoppers during those times.  One
of the more recent interpretations I have heard on Hamlet was that while his
father slept, the poison that flowed into his ear was "vile semen"; his ear
represented the anus. That is strange.  My class was appalled needless to say.

Michael Saenger;

Since so many of us are happy with this list the way it is, I suggest you start
your own list along the lines you describe. If a group is fairly small it is
very easy to maintain a list. One simply uses the same heading for each post,
and under "cc" either types in or copies in the list of subscribers, thus each
message goes to the entire list. For a larger list, someone who has done it
(such as Hardy Cook) would surely be willing to offer pointers to get you
started. Your idea for a list sounds like an interesting one, and, as you say,
it would be very interesting to hear from those researchers who are presently
not posting anywhere. I would be glad to subscribe to such a list, and to
submit to the rules as you describe them (evidence in each post of research?
titles of books, etc.?) since on SHAKSPER we have a place to post more freely.

I have been researching the biographies and works of the University wits, and
at the moment am on a fairly small list of others who are doing the same thing.
If there is anyone out there interested in this area, please post to me
directly.

Stephanie Hughes

Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0165 Re: About This List

I have just returned to the office after a week away.  While it momentarily
seems something of a chore to go through so many messages from SHAKESPER, it
quickly becomes a pleasure.  I see what people are interested in and talking
about these days.  If I wish to use something for a class, I store the
information for a later date.  If I wish to respond, I can communicate by
e-mail or the list.  If I wish to forget, I push a key.

Is this not a blending of conversation and the early stages of research? For
someone who has no colleagues who specialize in the Renaissance, this
conversation is a delight.  For someone who writes memos and reports, whose
weeks are filled with administrative meetings, these "stages" are stimulating
incentives for different writing and more fulfilling weeks.
