Subject:        Criticism on the Web

Steven Marx has recently made a plea, which I wholeheartedly second, for
more criticism to be published on the web. Dr. Marx has led the way with
his own freely available scholarship, as have _EMLS_ (containing much of
the SHAKSPER listserv archives), _Connotations_, and _Renaissance Forum_
among other publications.  As a webliographer, I have attempted to
catalog as much criticism as I could find on the web for the use of the
Shakespeare community.  The paucity of resources, in spite of the
excellent resources listed above, is alarming.  If you have on-line
criticism you have mounted, please inform me and I will index it on the
criticism pages of "Mr. William Shakespeare and the Internet,"  and from
there it will be disseminated on other indices.  If not, I would
encourage all front line scholars to use the web to disseminate their
ideas: either through their Departmental web servers, or one of the
excellent web publications previously mentioned.

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0905  Re: Stuff on the Internet

I'm sorry, but the thought of amplifying the volume of material on
Shakespeare yet further by having unmoderated, unrefereed essays simply
'available' on the internet fills me with horror.

Having spent five years trying desperately to keep up with published
material for the annual review in *Shakespeare Survey* I'm only too
aware of the fact that even with the barriers to print that exist a good
deal that is pretty pointless already troubles the data-bases.

Between a list such as this, which valuably allows people to shoot from
the hip, and 'publication' which it is expected that any serious scholar
should consult there ought, in my view, to be some sort of fire-screen.
No doubt this is, Canute-like, to wish the waves away but.....

Isn't there a problem with copyright here?  Can we publish our work on
the web and then have it published by a jounral or press?  I thought
that one precluded the other.

Best,
Richard
