To Porter Jamison

What means "advanced visual interpretive skills"?

I've got an analysis of the problem - entitled "Pseudo Literacy" and will
E-Mail it to you if you wish.

Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0255 Re: RSC MND

Regarding a sexual relationship between Oberon and Puck, my question is why
shouldn't there be one?  If the forest has been set up as a place of sensuality
and sexual license, which it has in the current production of MND, then where's
the problem?  And why should it matter if Puck is male or female?  When a
director decides to interpret a play shouldn't s/he be entitled to call upon
whatever character relationships are available to support the procduction
concept, regardless of historical accuracy or propriety?

Sincerely,
Shirley Kagan.

Maybe I'm being dim, but how do you know you don't like it until you've read
it?

If I had the capacity to filter out all the things I don't want to read, I
wouldn't need the editors of scholarly journals to do this for me. (Ditto the
organizers of conferences, the editors of books, etc).

What's the point of book reviews? Why have entry requirements for degree
courses? Why not just walk into any bar and discuss your subject with whoever
is in there? You can always filter out the rubbish, apparently.

If it's truely important, couldn't we just dig up a few bones and measure them?

Correction: Black ink was made from oak galls, not gall bladders. Those who
tried it with gall bladders will be reimbursed.
