For Harvey Roy Greenberg:

Check with Susan Baker, Dept of English, U of Nevada, Reno.  Her current
research deals with WS and detective fiction.  Her article, "Shakespearean
Authority in the Classic Detective Story," appeared in *Shakespeare Quarterly*
46 (Winter 1995): 424-448.  Either she or the article may prove helpful.

Regards,
Evelyn Gajowski

REGAN

No amount of research beyond a careful sensitivity to her words will yield
anything up, in my view. She is a consonantal woman, unlike her sister Goneril
who is a bid-mouthed vowelly person. I think a key to her resides in the
neatness and self-containment of

        ...find I am alone felicitate
        In your dear Highness' love

and its preceding

        Than the most precious square of sense possesses.

Physically: look at Diana Rigg's face as it now is, and you've got the human
type that feels and looks the way those words and constructions sound.

As far as I know, first translation ever produced in France of complete Shk'
works is due to Fran=E7ois-Victor Hugo, son of Victor, which puts the first
edition in the late 19th century. I'll be looking for earlier partial
translations. I think too the first important french criticism about
Shakespeare can be found somewhere in the dephts of Voltaire's work, and is not
quite positive if I remember well.

I probably don't teach you anything by telling that Shakespeare was first
appreciated in France by romantics artists, who saw in his work a kind of
archetypal pattern for theirs (cf Stendhal's funny "Le th=E9=E2tre de=
Shakspeare".

I can check all those messy references if it may help you.

Emmanuel
