Re the CD-ROM associated with the Norton.  It is terrific: there's
nothing like it on the scene.  I know since I'm editing it.  (No bias
here.)  The CD-ROM focuses on six plays: Merchant, 1 Hen 4, Dream,
Hamlet, Othello, Tempest.  In addition to texts of the plays, of course,
it has key selections which are acted out by a London group, also film
and audio clips, and the passages are gateways into an inventory of
topical discussions-eg. "What does Titania look like?" : conceptions of
fairies from early modern to present, with images natch-and exemplary
descriptions of productions from Restoration to present including
descriptions of operatic adaptations, etc, plus stuff on sources.  It's
a LOT of fun and a great learning tool for students.

How to get it.  The MND section is going to be bundled in with each copy
of the Norton Sh. as a freebie (I believe).  The full CD-ROM will be
available in September and will cost $15 if ordered with the Norton
Shakespeare  $30 as a standalone.  It may be possible to sample the MND
section in advance: not sure.  I will query Norton and post to this list
if I have more info.  Anyone interested is also welcome to email me
directly.

With no bias or self-interest at all,
Mark Rose

I, too, am glad to hear of the interest in the Norton Shakespeare
Workshop CD-ROM. We are indeed including a free copy of the CD-ROM demo
(it focuses on _A Midsummer Night's Dream_) in all books sampled to
professors. We will begin to ship at the end of next month. If you
aren't already online to be sent a copy, contact your local Norton
representative or email me (

 ) and I'll forward
your request to the representative. More ordering information and
samples of CD-ROM are available on our web site:

www.wwnorton.com/college/english/shakespeare/cdrom.htm

You can also access from the this site the "Teaching with the Norton
Shakespeare CD-ROM" forum. It just went up yesterday.

Let me know if I can be of any additional help.

A sales rep who visited me recently (named Mathew Arnold, oddly enough)
told me that the Norton will be available for purchase as of late march
(at the time of the SAA) and that one may buy it solely as a text or as
a
text with a CD-Rom.  (I think that there is a CD-Rom for students adn
one
for teachers as well).

Best,
Richard
