Susan Mather,

Do have a look - if you haven't done so already - at Alex Aronson's *Psyche
& Symbol in Shakespeare* (Indiana UP, 1972), esp. pp181-89, 224-28.

Good luck,
A. Oz

Must we assumee that Shakespeare knew what Shylock's intention is when he
proposes the pound of flesh agreement?  Perhaps Shylock himself doesn't know.
It seems to me entirely possible that he is saying to himself, "Let's float
this and see where it goes.

Subject: Q: Hesiod
Comment:        SHK 7.0430  Q: Hesiod

Steve Sohmer should look for Hesiod in the index to John Velz's bibliography of
Shakespeare and the Classics, and perhaps follow that up with a note to J.V. (a
subscriber to this list, I believe).  I'm going to guess that it's one of those
situations where direct knowledge would be hard to demonstrate, because
Hesiodic ideas (e.g. the golden age) were distributed through other classical
authors, through medieval and early modern writers drawing on those other
classical authors, through early modern writers directly familar with Hesiod,
and throughpeople Shakespeare talked to who knew one or more of these sources.

Diffusely,
David Evett

Dear Susan Mather: I'd assumed that, like me, you were hailing the 'Florence
Amit' postings as the elaborate joke they clearly were. She will certainly be
much missed. Are you now hinting that it was really you all along? Love it.
