Subject:        Additions to Charactr Biblio

Two suggested additions to the list of works in which WS appears as a
character:

1. "Will Shakespeare" by John Mortimer, published in the UK by Hodder and
Staughton in 1977. This is the novelisation of a British TV drama series about
the life of Shakespeare.

2. "Dogg's Hamlet" by Tom Stoppard. Shakespeare speaks the prologue.

The first edition (1970) of the late Prof. Schoenbaum's book "Shakespeare's
Lives" contained a chapter on works involving Shakespeare. This was cut from
the second edition (1992). If someone has access to the 1st edition, they might
be able to enlarge the list further.

[Editor's Note: This posting refers to CHARACTR BIBLIO, "A bibliography of
works in which Shakespeare figures as a character." SHAKSPEReans can retrieve
CHARACTR BIBLIO from the SHAKSPER Fileserver by sending a one-line mail message
