Subject:        Macbeth Curse

Hello I'm rather new to the list and I'm sure this question may have
come up before.  I'm looking for any and all information on how the
"curse" of the play Macbeth came to be.  If anyone knows how about this
or can direct me to sources or archive files on the subject it would be
much appreciated.

Thank you,
Charlie Garbowski

Subject:        "A Game of Chess"

Currently, I have a course on Shakespeare and another course on T.S.
Eliot's "The Wasteland."  I noticed that in The Tempest Miranda and
Ferdinand play a game of chess.  I also noticed that in "The Wasteland"
there are many references to Shakespeare's The Tempest.  I am wondering
if there is any significance or connection to Miranda and Ferdinand's
game of chess to section 2, "A Game of Chess" in Eliot's "The
Wasteland?"  If anybody can shed some light on this matter, please
respond!

Subject:        Textual Query about The Two Gentlemen of Verona

In act 3, scene 2 of Two Gentlemen of Verona, the Folio prints the
following speech from Proteus to the Duke (after Proteus has betrayed
Valentine to the Duke):

Pro. Longer then I proue loyall to your Grace,
Let me not liue, to looke vpon your Grace.
(3.2.20-1)

I want to ask if any one has seen an edition in which the editor
discusses the possibility that the second of these lines just might be
in error, the true text being

Pro. Longer then I proue loyall to your Grace,
Let me not liue, to looke vpon your face.

I only ask because the repetition of 'your Grace' seems a bit clumsy and
it would have been an easy mistake for the compositor (or Ralph Crane)
to make if he tried to carry both lines in his head at once. The fact
that this is a simple rhyming couplet in a passage which is otherwise in
blank verse would tend to encourage the compositor/scribe to try to
carry the couplet rather than one line at a time.

I've looked in the Oxford 'Textual Companion', Riverside1 and Arden2; no
comment from any of them about this. I don't have easy access to the
variorum edition. Has no editor ever been tempted to emend 'Grace' to
'face'? I'd be interested if anyone can offer some information.

Subject:        Lear:   Double Casting

I am looking for information on double casting in Lear.  Does anyone
have experience (audience or performer) with doubling in Lear?
