Does anyone know when the New Riverside is due out in the UK? If I'm
buying just one complete edition of Shakespeare, would the New Riverside
be a better bet than the new Greenblatt/Norton edition (which looks very
tempting)?

Subject:        The Birth of Hercules?

I have recently heard mention of a supposed lost Shakespeare play called
"The Birth of Hercules" does anyone know anything about it?  For example
I know there are 15th and 16th century references to "Loves Labor's Won"
and "Cardenio" but I have never heard of any references to "Hercules."
I am not interested in the authorship question, only references to the
play itself. "Just the facts ma'am"

Many thanks,
John V Robinson
