This came up in my project group - who did Rowse think the Dark Lady was
and why?

Subject:        Hazle Shrew

In Taming of the Shrew 2.1, Petruchio says to Katherine:

                Why does the world report that Kate doth limpe ?
                Oh sland'rous world : Kate is like the hazle twig
                Is straight, and slender, and as browne in hue
                As hazlenuts, and sweeter then the kernels :
                Oh let me see thee walke : thou dost not halt.

Why a "hazle" twig?  (other than for scansion) And in the midst of all
these ostensible compliments, why does Petruchio call Katherine "browne
in hue."

My actor playing Petruchio is stumped on this, and I haven't found
anything helpful yet.  All replies welcome.

Two questions:
#1 How do I ask for a Search (to find any discussion on R3 in the past
bit)?

#2 Has anyone else who subscribes to the SHAKESPEARE magazine NOT got
their fall issue (on Macbeth).  They told me that it had been mailed
three weeks ago. Is Uncle Sam really that slooooooooow?

[Editor's Note:  I have appended the Search Directions below. --HMC]

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SEARCHING THE SHAKSPER ARCHIVES

The basic method for searching the archives is to send to

  the following command (filling in the KEYWORD
you wish without the square brackets):

Search SHAKSPER [Keyword]

For example, if you wished to see all occurrences of "Pericles" in the
archives, you would send the following message:

Search SHAKSPER Pericles

You can also search using the BOOLEAN operators AND, OR, NOT:

Search SHAKSPER Pericles AND Kinsmen

Further, you can limit your search by DATES:

Search SHAKSPER Pericles from 93/7/1 to 96/12/31

Search SHAKSPER Pericles since 96/1/1

In return, you will receive a list of "matches," identified by "item
number." To order a copy of this/these postings, send the following
command to

To help you decided what items to order, the file you receive from your
query also contains a Key Word in Context listing of the matches.
