Subject:        Another Lodging Question

Thank you to all and sundry who replied to my question about London
accommodations.  Now if I may strain the patience of SHAKESPERians once
more: What have those of you who have worked in the Shakespeare Centre
Library at Stratford done about lodgings?  Is the best bet a B&B? Please
reply to me privately with any suggestions you have to offer-flats you
know for rent, your favorite B&B, etc.  I'll be there for about 2 weeks
in November.

With thanks--

Dear colleagues,

A call for recommendations of good short books introducing readers to
study of the early modern period as a whole, that might serve for an
upper-level undergrad Intro course in Renaissance studies.  I'm still
fond of Eugene Rice's Foundations of Early Modern Europe 1460-1559,
which convincingly organizes a lot of matters in a short space, but
there are no doubt others I dont know about, and there has been much
work in the area since Rice wrote in 1970.  Please feel free to reply
direct as well as to the list.

Thanks,
Tom

Dear SHAKSPEAReans,

I wonder if someone out there knew some books or studies in which the
author finds significant differences between metaphor and simile (or
metonyny), and tries to re-interpret Shakespeare's plays with a view to
such differences.  In _Farce and Beyond: Antipholus, Katherina, and
Proteus_, Roger L. Cox writes that ERR is a play of simile whereas SHR
is that of metaphor.  But, I don't find the distinction valid, for his
idea of simile is not deep-rooted( he only says ERR is built upon a
simile in that Ant. of Eph. is _like_ Ant. of Syr.). Isn't this too
brief?

I need a more radical perspective about the comparison. Linguistic
studies may help me, but I'm not sure. Jakobson's monograph on aphasia
would have been charming if he had given us enough cases.  Anyway,
thanks in advance for the help!

Regards,
Todok
