Yes, Eugene Waith did write _The Herculean Hero in Marlowe, Chapman,
Shakespeare and Dryden_.  I have recently had occasion to reread it and found
no reference to the Malvolio parallel.

Comment:        RE: SHK 7.0364  TEACHING SHAKESPEARE THROUGH PERFORMANCE

My favorite manual for breaking Shakspeare's actor code is Cicely Berry, _The
Actor and His Text_ (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1987)  ISBN
0-684-18937-2. Her approach to text and to the process of mining makes it clear
that she is aiming at the same result, although from a different direction, as
Stanislavsky-based approaches--to find the inner life of the (do I dare say it)
character.

To Jeff Meyers:

I did not find Mr. Groves comment amusing nor do I think he intended to discuss
the matter humorously; but rather to make sure that discussion was curtailed by
guillotining me. Had my larger essay appeared before, perhaps he would have
abstained, considering that my neck was thicker than anticipated .  Alas there
are some among you who appear  more clever than brave. But so it is that
although I agree that I am not the person to do a serious work of Hebrew
scholarship, the Hebrew never-the less is there, in Shakespeare and that is
really my message to you. No joker will remove it. Hopefully someone, better
equipped than I, will make a systematic and comprehensive survey. I thank Keith
Richard for his noble defense of me. I am not a professor but an artist. Is
that not good enough to open new aspects of consideration?
