Subject:        Arden of Feversham

On http://www.dwnet.com/marlowe/02msnews.html it says that *Arden of
Feversham* is by Marlowe (there was no question mark after Marlowe.)  I
wasn't aware that such a firm attribution had been made.  Tell me about
it.

P.S.:  Why is this listserv called "SHAKSPER" and not "SHAKESPEARE" or
"SHAKESPERE" or "SHAKE-SPEARE" or "SHAK-SPEAR" or "SHAKSPEARE" or
"SHAKSPERE" or "SHAKE-SPER" or "SHAKESPEARE" or "SHAKE-SPEAR" OR
"SHAKESPEAR" or "SHAXPER" or "SHAGSPER" or "SHAKBERD" or "SHAXBERD" or
"SHAGSBEARD" or "SHAGSBEARD" or "SHAGS-BEARD" or "SHEXBER" or "CHOXPER"
or "CHAXPER" or "CHOCKSBEARD" or...

[Editor's Note: I'll answer this one directly.  Listserv requires that
lists have an eight character name.  SHAKSPER's founder Ken Steele
selected SHAKSPER after rejecting a number of vowelless alternatives.
As to the pronunciation of the SHAKSPER, I pronounce as if it were
spelled SHAKeSPEaRe; others pronounce it as it is spelled - this is a
matter of preference.  HMC]

Subject:        Re: Public Relations in Shakespeare's Day

Can anyone refer me to literature regarding ways of  letting the people
of London know about forthcoming performances in Shakespeare's day?  Was
the flying of the pennant  from the top of the Globe (as in the Olivier
Hen.V) sufficient? To what extent were hand-bills used? What about town
criers?  Any ideas how word of mouth actually worked?  I'd be grateful
for any references to literature on the subject.  either on SHAKSPER or
privately.
