Subject:        The Fair Maid of Clifton

I am writing my dissertation on portraits in Renaissance drama and have read
that William Sampson wrote a play called The Fair Maid of Clifton with a
portrait in it.  I have been unable to find this play anywhere, and was
wondering if any of you have read it or seen it anywhere.  I believe it was
written/entered in S.R./acted around 1629.

If you know of a publisher or anthology with this play, or recall other little
known plays with portraits in them (paintings, sculpture, effigies, etc.), I
would greatly appreciate any information.

Subject:        Textual criticism question.

I would like to give students in my literary criticism class (beginning in
September) an exercise in textual criticism and would appreciate suggestions on
how I might do this with a scene from Shakespeare.

Does anyone know of a scene from Shakespeare, preferably one that isn't of
great length, that has presented textual critics with interesting problems in
determining an authoritative text?  What I would like to do would be to give my
students three versions of a scene--the first folio version and, ideally, two
quarto versions, and ask them to construct a plausible edition of that scene
based both on internal and external evidence--but mainly internal.

I have no idea about whether this is a practical assignment, but any
suggestions or comments would be appreciated.   Perhaps these should be sent to
me directly since this issue may not be of interest to most people who
subscribe to this list.

Could anybody recommend recent bibliography on the problem of CHAOS AND ORDER
in Shakespeare's drama? Thank you.
