Subject:        Names' Translation.

Hello, everybody:

This is the first message I am sending to the list. I do not know what
will it result, so here I go!

A friend of mine and I are working on a Spanish version of _The Merry
Wives of Windsor_ for the stage; but we have a small problem:
characters' translation. As translator I am not particularly interested
on translate the characters' names, but on the other hand we are seeing
that if we do not do it, maybe the The Bard's satire and ironic ideas
will miss.

Could anybody be so kind to give opinions and so? Thank you very much
and regards from Spain.

Subject:        R&J CD-Rom

While reading "Working Mother" magazine (March 1998) I came across their
recommendation of an R&J CD-Rom with "hip images, contemporary language
and cybersavy direction..."  They profess it has "five-fast-paced games
[that] familiarize players with the period, vocabulary, characters and
plot...accompanied by scene summaries, hyper-linked footnotes,
illustrations and scene-by-scene debates among four animated teenagers."
(Stratford Studios, $50, 1-888-YO-BILLY)

The magazine lists this on its page of info geared to kids age 11-14.

Anyone ever heard of this? used it? designed it???  I'm interested to
hear opinions.  Do they have other titles?  Would it be appropriate in
the classroom?

I will call the 888 number, but just wondered if anyone had any personal
experience with this.

Thanks,
Susan St. John

Subject:        Elizabethan Audience/Society

I am new to this board and am currently enrolled in my first class on
Shakespeare.  My term paper for this semester will cover the effect
Shakespeare had on his audience.  I would like to know if there are any
articles or books available which deal specifically with how
Shakespeare's audience was influenced by his plays.  I am looking for
published work that I can refer to in my analysis. Also of interest
would be information on his contemporary critics and any direct or
indirect comment by them about Shakespeare. I understand that his plays
were often veiled comments on Elizabethan society.  What effect did this
have? I am aware of one possible event to consider for discussion
regarding the Earl of Essex.

I would enjoy exploring this topic and have found tidbits here and there
which I believe I can work with; however, any further information
provided will be much appreciated. Also, I've tried to search the
archive files of this list but have come up short.  If there are any
ideas on keywords I might use I would appreciate the suggestion.


Thanks very much.  Layla Abuisba
