Subject:        Thanks to SHAKSPER!

I wanted to thank all of you again who responded to my inquiry on Richard of
Bordeaux.  My apologies for botching the name -- of course it was Elizabeth
Mackintosh, writing under the name of Gordon Daviot.

Once I am successfully subscribed to your list, I look forward to sharing some
of my research, as well as some related ideas I recently developed during a
production of Hamlet, which I transposed into a more modern idiom (selectively,
mind you -- none of this 'I can write better than the Bard' nonsense, I just
tweaked it a bit) ... but more than that, I look forward to seeing what all of
you have been up to!

Cheers,
Andy White

Genevieve Guenther asks what texts from the 1590s and 1600s have to do with the
turn of our century, and in the interests of clarification . . .

The director of our honors program has solicited course proposals in
recognition of our upcoming turn of the century.  The request prompted me to
think about the turn of the century at the center of the period that interests
me, and so I am working on putting a course together.

BTW, I have received several intriguing suggestions/recommendations.  My plan
is to compile them and send a list to SHAKSPER for your information and further
commentary.  Thanks to all who have responded.

"If anyone wants 'em, I have some parallel text handouts for Lear, Romeo and
Juliet, Hamlet, and everyone's FAVORITES, Henry VI two and three. "

Hey, watch it:  Henry VI, part 3, *was* a favorite of my company!  We liked
playing with the blood bags.  And Margaret was too much fun to resist.

I second the praises of Martin Orkin for organizing the wonderful conference on
Shakespeare and Postcoloniality in Johannesburg. Accompanying our work was the
felt awareness that this crucial time and place in contemporary history
concentrates the aspirations and anxieties of much of the world.  The intensity
of the conference, the global diversity of the participants, the different
personal meanings the conference held for us, the challenges and clarifications
it offered concerning professional identity, purpose, and strategy, and the
opportunities Martin provided for exchange and insight,  made it for many of us
a series of extraordinary events that cannot be assimilated and articulated in
a short period of time.  Thanks again Martin and all involved.
