Subject:        Identity of WH

As a new subscriber to the list I am wary of asking questions that have
been visited earlier. However, I am also overawed by the quantity of
indexed discussions.

I am keen to discuss the question of the identity of WH with other
subscribers as I have been conducting research in this area. Is there an
efficient way to search for previous references to this subject?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Subject:        Re: Shakespeare's Ghosts

I am currently involved in doing some extensive work with the modern
appropriation of the traditional ghost story.  In light of the recent
discussion of the Macbeth apparitions and the recent film rendition of
Richard III which omits the ghosts entirely, I thought this might be a
timely topic.  My question is twofold: 1) can anyone direct me to a work
or works on the influence of Shakespeare's ghosts on modern writers (I
am most specifically interested in American and French writers, as I am
writing on Faulkner at this time, but any others, specifically
non-Western writers, would be of interest to me as well).  2) Is anyone
able to share instances where they have found the ghosts of Shakespeare
to have influenced a work of group of works to any great extent.

Though I am aware of and influenced by the readings given by Lacan,
Levinas, Derrida, and Garber, I am more interested in how this topic has
been approached in more "literary" and "Shakespearian" circles.  Any
information regardless of the perspective is greatly appreciated.

I would also hope that others might choose to discuss their own thoughts
on the importance of the ghosts of Shakespeare.

Subject:        Henry V

Does anyone have, or can anyone point me to the particulars of the Law
Salique which Henry V invoked to justify his invasion and claim to
France?  I have had difficulty tracking this information down.  Thank
you.
