Subject:        Re: Letters and Reports in Shakespeare

I'm interested in the dramatic character of the letters that appear in
Shakespeare's plays and in the reports given by dramatis personae about events
that happen on stage.  I've read a number of essays in journals on these topics
but am ignorant about any book-length studies.  Any suggestions for
reading--monographs, articles, notes--on the use of letters and reports in
Shakespeare would be greatly appreciated.

Subject:        Did Belott Read the Sonnets?

Every so often I like to poke around and see if there is anything new and
exciting regarding two most extraordinary features of the data regarding
Shakespeare.  What better resource than the SHAKSPER list?

To recount the well-known - in 1609 a series of poems were published, opening
with a plea that some unnamed young lord should marry.  In 1612, Master
Shakespeare was called to witness in the Belott suit, regarding a time perhaps
as early as 1602 when he had lain at the house of one Mountjoy.

It is unusual, this theme that a young lord should marry, yes?  Isn't it a
strange coincidence that one of the occasions for the Bard to appear in court
was over a duplicate to the role he played in the Sonnets?

I think it's remarkable, and would welcome any comments or suggestions which
deals with the possibilities I hint at.  Private mail welcome to
