Dear Shakspereans,

A colleague of mine wants to know about Bible web-pages. She would like to have
access to medievan and Renaissance English translations. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Subject:        Q: Perspective & Drama

Dear Members,

Does anyone know about bibliography on perspective (pictorial or otherwise) and
Renaissance drama, especially Thomas Kyd and Ben Jonson, or "spatial theory"
and drama?

Thanks in advance.

Subject:        Q: "Theatre of Blood" titles

Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans!

I'm looking for someone who can help me to identify the plays that are featured
in the titles of _Theatre_of_Blood_. (You know - these short b/w silent movie
scenes.)

I remember that at least one was from "The Merchant of Venice", another from
"Richard III", I think. Maybe they are scenes from the plays featured in the
movie? (Cesar, Troilus, Richard III, Merchant, Henry VI, Cymbeline, Titus.)

Additionally, I would like to know from which productions they were taken.
Anyone with a good knowledge of old silent movie versions out there?

Regards,
        Andreas.

Subject:        Norfolk in R III 3.4

Staging this little scene with my class this semester, we have been led to
wonder about the role of Norfolk, who is listed in the Folio entrance but says
nothing during the scene and has no specific exit given.  Norfolk later plays a
more prominent role as one of Richard's generals at Bosworth, and receives the
couplet about  "Dickon thy master".  I cannot recall ever having seen Norfolk
in the earlier scene though. It is his firsr specific direction in the plyay.
Do members have comments or recollections on his presence and demeanour? There
seem to be several possibilities.

Tom

Subject:        Edition Recognition?

In an email today, a friend referred to a mysterious edition of Shakespeare
that I have never heard of before  and I wondered if anyone knew which one he
meant:
<snip>
By the way, I bought a modern type, paperback edition of Dream, which retains
original spelling and punctuation from Q1.  Very interesting.  I don't have it
with me at my office.  I think the publisher was Routledge, but i might be
mistaken.  Othello, A&C and Dream are available in this edition.  LLL was not
in stock but I didn't take the time to ask if it was published.  They are as
expensive as the Arden but kind of better
</snip>
Does this sound familiar?
