Subject:        Electronic texts, early

Can anybody direct me to a source of electronically available quarto and
folio texts of *Othello*--not the facsimiles of the Arden, but text-file
texts (ideally in RTF format) that can be downloaded and then edited?
(I know that Michael Best called attention to such texts of other plays
available from Internet Shakespeare Editions, but *Othello* is what
we're working on.)

Subject:        Actors' Sides

Thinking about early modern stage practice, short rehearsal times, etc.,
I am moved to wonder whether an actor might have helped another actor
pick up cues by passing the verbal ball in some relatively obvious
way-the cocked head and raised eyebrows of somebody expecting an answer,
etc.  Query 1: did actors' sides contain following as well as leading
cues, so an actor would know from the side who spoke next?  Query 2: are
the surviving sides reproduced anyplace accessible?

All cued up,
Dave Evett

I know that the RSC is bringing Hamlet, Cymbeline, Henry VII, and
Everyman to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in May, but does anyone know
where else in the U.S. they will appear?

Thanks,

Subject:        Thucydides and epic pathos

On a non-Shakespearean topic -- although the theme is distinctly Bardic
- In connection with a review on the defects of TITANIC, I plan to cite
a number of past and modern descriptions of epic catastrophic events
charged with a particular species of pathos (outstanding contemporary
example, radio announcer as the Hindenberg blew up-"Oh the humanity, the
humanity...." ) .  Not having my Thucydides at hand, I do remember a
battle between the Athenians and Spartans in which the Spartans had
forced their adversaries into a pitched battle at a riverside; the
Athenians, as I recall, were caught between two forces,  propelled into
the water, slaughtered en masse   drowned slaughtered even more
grievously when the survivors attempted to gain the shore. I do not
think I am cobbling this together from other sources. Would anyone be
able to give me the appropriate reference?
many thanks

Harvey Roy Greenberg
