Subject:        Request info for bibliography of Renaissance poetry web pages

A graduate student in English at Western Carolina University,  I am presently
doing research for my thesis--an annotated bibliography of on-line (Internet)
resources available for the study of English Renaissance poetry.  The
bibliography's cardinal focus is listing and annotating primary and secondary
Internet resources, in English, available for the poetry of Shakespeare,
Sidney, and Spenser.  In addition, the bibliography describes the availability
of other key Internet research aids, such as on-line editions of The Oxford
English Dictionary and The Bible.  It omits works that are static in nature,
such as cd-rom editions of Shakespeare's works, focusing instead solely on the
Internet's dynamic sites.

Though there are several literary overviews already on the Internet, such as
those sited on the Starting Point for Literary Research available
http://www.kingsu.ab.ca/~angela/literary.html, there is none, thus far, that
focuses only on the poetry of these three great Renaissance poets and related
secondary sites.

In order to produce a bibliography that is as complete as possible, I am
soliciting information regarding any obscure sites that you might be familiar
with or favorite sites that you feel should be included in this bibliography.

Any pertinent information will be greatly appreciated.  Please e-mail responses

Thank you,

Subject:        Productions of 12th night

I am currently in pre-production for 12th night, which I will be Assistant
Directing.  I am looking for personal or historical ideas in which to cross
cast (some of the male parts to be played by females.)  This is being done in a
university setting, with 40+ females in the program, and this quarter there are
only three scripted female roles.

So, if any one has any ideas for this, please drop me a line.  I am weary of
offering any unproved suggestions, since gender is such a important issue to
this text.

In the third act, scene 7 of King Lear, the Bantan/Bevington edition has an
editor's stage direction at the moment Gloucester's first eye is removed.
"Cornwall . . . grinds [it out] with his boot," it says. That strikes my class
and myself as absurd, and we wonder when this stage direction was first
suggested, and by whom. Any help would be appreciated.

Dear SHAKSPERians,

For years I have been looking for for a copy of George Brandes' book _William
Shakespeare_ (the Oxford edition, London 1898), but haven't found it. Does any
of you have a copy that he/she could sell to me?

Please, do help me - this book is a necessity to my studies!

Mikko Nortela
