Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of any major 20th Century
productions of MACBETH that have included the Hecate material?

Subject:        Funeral Elegy to Master William Peter

To all:

I was given not long ago, before I subscribed to the list, some
photocopies of a manuscript attributed to Shakespeare.  It is a funeral
elegy dedicated to William Peter. In the upper part of the first page it
reads:

W[illiam] S[hakespeare], "A Funeral Elegy for Master William Peter."
(London: G.Eld for T.Thorpe, 1612). Normalized text, ed. Donald Foster.

I still haven't found any information, or commentary,  on this elegy
even though I have searched the National Library. Do any of you know
about this?

I have not been able to locate information on it.

Best regards,
