Comment:        Re: SHK 8.1217  Re: Sonnets

Just a note on the vagaries of the contemporary publishing business. I
paid a visit to my favorite independent bookstore in the area, the
Hungry Mind, and hoped to look at Helen Vendler's book on the sonnets (I
didn't plan to buy it, since I don't feel I can afford it right now). I
learned from staff members that they are all out, and that Harvard UP is
all out as well; the book won't be back in print until late January.
Apparently, according to someone at Harvard, they completely
underestimated potential demand for the book, and were busy promoting
another recent publication on the Kennedy White House tapes. Copies may
still be out there at bookstores, but you may have to search a bit. It's
nice to know that Will can still have a "best seller."

I have a problem and, I hope, an opportunity.  I have a total of four
tickets to the sold-out DC Othello for Saturday evening, December 27th.
Now one of those I plan to use myself, as I am indeed a Shakespeare
addict and a Star Trek fan of the Magnificent Patrick Stewart whose
Othello I hope I like more than I did his NY Prospero.

It's the other three tickets that are a problem-I had planned, several
months ago when I got the tickets from a friend who has a
subscription-to go with three friends, two of whom would come willingly
and one of whom I would drag since it's near my birthday and I have
chips I can use.  But the couple can't make it, leaving me with two
extra tickets and the prospect of a dutiful but not joyful companion.

So I was wondering if the List could help me out.  Any single male over
45 could consider himself rented for the evening (though would be
invited to buy me dinner) and any two others could have the seats for
cost, provided they would be willing to perhaps join the Shakespearian
dinner.  Should there be a dearth of interested or available persons of
the male persuasion, then I'd be glad to have any other singletons for
cost, too.  The cost is $49.50.
