Dear fellow Shakespeareans:

Anyone visiting the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul between now and
August 2 is invited to the Shakespeare in the Park production of  _Much
Ado About Nothing_. I am making my debut as a dramaturg on this show,
and it has been a great deal of fun. The show opens this weekend and
plays in various Minneapolis parks over the next five weeks. For more
information, please e-mail me at

I have just returned from seeing the RSC production of Thomas Kyd's _The
Spanish Tragedy_ at The Swan Theatre, Stratford-on-Avon. It's a
bloodbath. It is also, I think. one of the most engrossing plays that I
have ever seen. I heartily recommend it.

Regards
Steve Neville

Subject:        Satellites with Names from Shakespeare

By coincidence, I've recently found out that the satellites of Uranus
are named after Shakespeare's characters and become curious.  The oldest
of them were named Oberon and Titania by a British astronomer Sir
William Herschel in 1787, and even in this century, names like Cordelia
and Ophelia have been added to the list.

Does anyone know how they came to be named after Shakespeare's
characters?

I will appreciate any information.
