Subject:        Shakespeare the Character Bibliography

[Editor's Note: Werner Habicht sent the message below to me for
informational purposes, but it does provide me an opportunity to make a
special plea. Both the files CHARACTR BIBLIO and SPINOFF BIBLIO on the
SHAKSPER Fileserver are in need of updating.  If anyone would like to
volunteer to undertake this minor task, please let me know.  Thanks,

May I make a suggestion or two towards a future updating of the
"Shakespeare, the Character" bibliography?

(1) The following items are listed (if not without misspellings) in the
section
"Unknown Medium":
Leon Daudet, Le voyage de Shakespeare (1896)
Konrad Haemmerling, Der Mann, der Shakespeare hiess (1938)
Since both are novels, they would seem to belong to the FICTION
category. So does Emma Severn, Anne Hathaway, or Shakespeare in Love
(1845).

(2) The presence of the above titles in languages other than English
makes one wonder if more of these should be added. Fictions of
Shakespeare the person are, after all, an international phenomenon. Here
are a few German examples - all of them novels, stories or fictional
biographies, hence FICTION:

- A. E. Brachvogel, Hamlet (1876) (novel)
- Alfred G
