Subject:        Edward III, Edmund Ironside, Cardenio, Early Plays

Does anyone know of any information I could read about
                Edward III
                Edmund Ironside
                The Famous Victories of Henry the Fifth
                The Troublesome Raigne of King John, Part 1
                The Troublesome Raigne of King John, Part 2
                The Taming of A Shrew   (Yes, I've read scene 1, and I
think it's good)
                The Chronicall Historie of Kinge Leir        (NOT Q1, the
EARLIER play)
                The Historie of Cardenio   (According to the late [as of
December] Charles               Hamilton)

I am also interested in Shakespeare Apocrypha--You know, th'old
            *A Yorkshire Tragedy*
            *Muceodorus*
            *The Merry Devil of Edmonton*
            *Edward II*  (Actually by Marlowe)
            *Edward IV*  (Actually by somebody or other [not by Billy] )
            *Sir Thomas More*
            *Sir Thomas Lord Cromwell*
            *Arden of Feversham*
            *Fair Em*
             etc.

I am also interested (VERY interested, in the case of the first one!) in Q1
*Hamlet*, the differences between Q and F *Lear*, "Bad Quartos" in general,
*Sir Thomas More*, Shakespeare's alleged bisexuality, and other matters.

I'm sure you'll all hate me for saying this, but I actually like *LOUES
LABOURS LOST*.

(Yes, I put the "u" in place of a "v" on purpose-I'm using the *New
Variorum Edition*!

                                                Your fellow {new}
SHAKSPERean,
                                Gabriel Z. Wasserman

PS:  Does anyone know where to find articles by the iconoclastic
Shakespeare scholar Eric Sams, besides in TLS, which I have no access to.

PPS: I'm interested in the Chandos portrait-aren't we all??!!!
