Subject:        Q: Romeo & Juliet in Film- and Videoversion

Dear Shakespeareans,

May I kindly ask you to recommend me any appropriate criticism for a
paper entitled "Romeo & Juliet in Film- and Videoversions" in
particular, and some basic works on filmography and film semiotics in
general, which might be helpful for making an analysis of filmtexts.

Thank you beforehand

Sincerely Yours,
Ilona Goldmane

Subject:        Re: Marriage

Before I go out on a limb in my honours thesis I would like the benefit
of advice from other SHAKSPERians.  Roughly what I want to say is this:

"Representations of marriage on Elizabethan and Jacobean stage are not
uncommon, it is rare, however, to find a comedy that relies upon the
social and economic tensions created by marriage, rather than the
problems of courtship, as the grounds for comic plot."

The three plays that I am looking at are Fletcher's The Coxcomb
(1608-10), The Woman's Prize (1611), and Rule a Wife and Have a Wife
(1624), all of which have marriage as the prime motivator behind the
comic plot.  With the exception of The Merry Wives of Windsor, and
perhaps The Taming of the Shrew, and The Comedy of Errors, does anybody
know of any comedies, Shakespearian or otherwise, which deal
specifically with marital relationships as the primary plot motivation?

Drew Whitehead.

Subject:        Evil Women in Shakespeare's Tragedies

Dear Shakespeareans,

May I kindly ask you some advice? I am writing an essay about evil women
in Shakespeare's tragedies and so far have not found too much material
on it.  I would like to focus on Lady Macbeth, Goneril and Regan and the
three witches in Macbeth but already thought about enlarging the topic.
It would then be about all women in Shakespeare's tragedies who provoked
a tragic ending.

Thank you beforehand,
Verena Beck
