I can't quite see how living in the mid-west makes you able to
understand Gertrude. Mind you, I once passed through Rickmansworth and
felt that I had got to the bottom of King Lear. It didn't last.

Regarding puppets; my favorite book for illustrations is Bil Baird's Art
of the Puppet (NY: Ridge P, 1973). There's also Robert Leach's book, The
Punch and Judy Show (Athens: Univ Georgia P, 1985). I have found the
Baird of more use than the Leach for the purposes of reading Bartholomew
Fayre, although the scholarship in Leach is prob better, and there's a
splendid bibliography.

Re the person who teaches sonnet 138. I do hope that when your students
have exhausted all the word play of the sonnet, you ask them to look at
sonnet 1 in Passionate Pilgrim.
