For an amazing global meditation on flowers, see Jack Goody, The Culture
of Flowers (Cambridge 1993).

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0515  Q: Shrew

The Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble in Bloomsburg, PA, produced a
cross-dressed SHREW about two years ago.  Apparently they found it not a
successful experiment.  Reviews should be available, probably in
Shakespeare Bulletin.

To Dom Saliani:

About twelve years ago I saw the Mediaeval Players do _The Taming of the
Shrew_ with a woman playing Petruchio and a man playing Katherina.  It
was very funny and very well received.

To Gabriel Wasserman:

The usual explanation for why Henry V claims a Welsh identity is that he
was born  in the Gatehouse Tower of Monmouth, a town just inside the
Welsh border.
