The discussion on Shrew and romance novels seems to warrant a reference
to a new novel, My Man Pendleton, which is apparently Shrew set in the
modern South.  Has anyone read this book?

On the 1992 XTC album "Nonsuch," Colin Moulding's song "My Bird
Performs" contains the lines, "Shakespeare's sonnets leave me cold / The
drama stage and the high brow prose," while Andy Partridge's song
"Omnibus" (on the same album) states, "Ain't nothing in the world like a
black skinned girl / Make your Shakespeare hard and make your oyster
pearl."  (The latter song also sings the praises of white-skinned,
gold-skinned, and green-skinned girls.)

Ecstatically,
Pete McCluskey

Comment:        Re: SHK 9.1161  Re: WT and Sheep

With regard to the proceeds to be derived from sheep, a small
qualification may be in order. I have been told that in the past sheep
(like people) were a lot smaller than they are now. At least, this was
the case in the eighteenth century, and it is hardly likely that they
shrunk after say 1600, to start growing again between 1800 and now. The
size of sheep would, I imagine, also affect the amount of wool they
produce, and definitely the amount of meat. Unfortunately, I only have
this information from hearsay, so I cannot refer the list to any
quotable sources.
