I have always assumed that, though Hermione was allowed to have her
women with her, (or rather, she decides that issue - "you have leave")
she gave birth early and, being in prison, had to nurse the baby
herself. The baby is taken directly from prison to the court. to ship to
another country. It is on  that journey where we might ask what the baby
had to eat - in the unlikely event that occurred to us in the theatre or
on first reading.

Dear Nicole Caccavo, The answer to your question about screen versions
of TNK is in a word, No. None exists. Ken Rothwell

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.1192 Re: Hazle

Allow me to echo Helen Ostovich's praise for the Stratford, Ontario
production of _Shrew_ from 1988, starring Goldie Semple and Colm Feore.
In fact, TVOntario broadcast that production that year-I've got most of
it on tape (damn and blast those ancient VCRs!), and intend to show the
finale to my students this week as we finish _Shrew_, which my students
have really dug into. Petruchio's entrance onstage prior to the wedding
is utterly brilliant, too, in this show.

I've not (to my shame, I admit) seen the film version, but will rent it
ASAP-my thanks for the recommendation.

Cheers,
Alex Bennett

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.1195 Re: your philosophy

I have always read this line with "your" as a reference to the various
philosophies with which Horatio as a learned man would have some
familiarity; it does not, for me, refer to a specific philosophy that
Horatio holds as his own, but to the collection of philosophical works
which might form his library.

Best,
Joe Shea

Well, quite, that is how they're meant. But with two billion of us on
Earth, two persons might easily share a one-in-a-billion pattern.
Reasonable doubt?

Thanks to Jonathan Hope for correcting my faulty reference:

There was an amateur production of _Gallathea_ by the Apollo Society in
St Catherine's College Meadow, Oxford, in June 1979.  It was directed by
Michael Pincombe, who is now at Newcastle University and a noted Lyly
scholar, and he discussed it in _Research Opportunities in Renaissance
Drama_  23 (1980), p.60.  Some years ago I compiled a checklist of
productions of non-Shakespearean Renaissance drama, but this is the only
Lyly it records.
