Subject:        Jaques and Hamlet

Dear All,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to recommend to me an article or
two, or perhaps a book, that makes mention of the similarities in
character between Jaques from "As You Like It" and Hamlet?  In some
ways, as I see it, Jaques seems almost a prototype of the melancholy
Dane: with respect to how he sees the world, how other characters see
him, etc.  I'm interested in going into this a bit in depth for a paper
I have to write, and wanted to run it by all of you (our library here at
B.U. being less than helpful on the subject).

I've taken what I think to be a fairly good run through the SHAKSPER
files and, unfortunately, haven't come up with much relevant
information...

Yours,
Ryan

Subject:        Q: Line Numbers in Different Editions of the Plays

I would like to ask if someone knows something about the following
'problem': Comparing two editions of the same play (New
Shakespeare-Cambridge University Press, edited by J.Dover Wilson x
Editions available in the Public Domain-MIT Server), I  have percived
that there are differences in the line numbers in both editions.
Although the copies available at the MIT server don't have the line
numbers edited, I can see that a specific line has not the same number
that the same line in the Cambridge Edition.  Is this possible or a
commom fact ? Does this fact occour in other editions of the plays ?

Thanks in advance.
Cristina Keunecke
