Subject:        CALL FOR PAPERS: Fulke Greville

CALL FOR PAPERS

`Fulke Greville is a good boy': A Symposium on the Life, Times and
Writings of Fulke Greville.

To be held at Shrewsbury School; Shrewsbury, Shropshire; April 3-5 1998.

Fulke Greville (1554-1628) poet, courtier, and friend of Philip Sidney.
Fulke Greville and Philip Sidney were life-long friends who began school
together at Shrewsbury on the same day in 1564.  The title of this
symposium comes from a comment scrawled by Sidney in one of his
school-books.

Greville has generally been studied principally in the shadow of his
famous friend.  He was however an accomplished writer, statesman, and
thinker in his own right.  The symposium sets out to explore and discuss
the life, times and writings of Fulke Greville, and to appraise the
current state of Fulke Greville scholarship.

Proposed topics for discussion include: the political, religious and
intellectual context of Fulke Greville's writing; editing Fulke
Greville; `Caelica' and Elizabethan sonnet sequences; closet drama; The
`Remains'; Fulke Greville's `Life of Sir Philip Sidney'; Fulke
Greville's life, death, and his relationship with Sidney; education and
schooling in the sixteenth century; Fulke Greville on war and monarchy;
and the critical reception of Fulke Greville.

If you are interested in attending or would like to offer a paper,

Subject:        John Lyly and "Gallathea"

I am just starting rehearsals for John Lyly's "Gallathea."  What a
delightful script!  I can't understand why I have never heard of other
productions, which has prompted this query.  Do any of you know of past
productions in the 20th Century?  I am interested in compiling a
production history and perhaps trying to convince more people that Lyly
deserves another chance on our stages.  I'd also be interested in
hearing about productions of other Lyly scripts.

I may feel differently after I get deeper into rehearsals or after the
show closes, but right now I'm convinced that there is a lot of fun to
be had from this script.  I know that some of you have taught the script
in various lit classes.  I'd enjoying hearing your students reactions to
the script as well.

If you're near Sioux Falls, South Dakota Feb. 20-22, 24-26, come see
some rare Lyly!
