Looking at the rhyming in Othello (Iago to Desdemona, Brabantio & the
Duke), I'm wondering if, in Shakespeare's day, this would have
represented a typical kind of English discourse, an "elite" type of
English discourse, or rather something that only the super subtle
Venetians would engage in.

Does anyone know if the journal Analytical & Enumerative Bibliography
(Northern Illinios U.) is still active. I have tried to e-mail the
editor William P. Williams but my e-mail is always returned undelivered.
Please don't give me his e-mail address...IT DOESN"T WORK.

Thanks for your time.

John Robinson

Does anyone know when Gary Taylor's _Complete Works Middleton_ is going
to hit the shelves?  BIP is silent, OCLC mute, and Ohiolink dumb.  I've
just noticed a few mentions here and there.
Thanks,
Gareth M. Euridge

Has anyone noticed the peculiar parochialism in the famous  Act 2 scene
1 speech of Gaunt in Richard II. He talks of a sceptred Isle and talks
as if the whole Island is England, when of course it was not, even if
there were claims against Scotland it seems a strange thing that he then
refers to England and not Great Britain or Britain. Is this a Freudian
slip. There is a long history of the English ignoring the Scots. In fact
there was considerable action after the Act of Union in 1707 to change
the name of the integrated country to England. Even in the 19th century
there was anti Scots feeling.

Was this deliberate on Shakespeare's part. Showing the limited view of
Gaunt or what? I think there may be references in Lear and Cymbeline to
Britain rather than England.
