Subject: Question---Line Length List
One of the things I hear alluded to a lot, but that I've never been able to
find in my years of interest in Shakespeare studies is the existence of a list
of which characters have the most lines. For instance, I was told that the top
three characters are Hamlet, Richard III, and Iago (tho maybe not in that
order) and that Rosalind has the most lines of any female role--more than
Cleopatra but less than Lear...but little else.
Does anybody know of the whereabouts of such a list if one exists.
Thanks, Chris Stroffolino
