Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0727  Re: Incest

A response and a query.  ANENT Rulers who willingly relinquish
authority: Charles V abdicated as Holy Roman Emperor in 1565 surely
Shakespeare was well aware of this.

Does anyone know of an inexpensive edition (new or used) of the Geneva
Bible?  Searches on bibliofind or with the Massachusetts Bible Society
produce only expensive editions ($35.00 and up).

Subject:        Proprietorship and Partnership

Several of Shakespeare's plays feature what I have begun to think of as
a trope of proprietorship (such as Egeus': As she is mine, I may dispose
of her-MND) set against a trope of partnership (for instance, Oberon:
Now thou and I are new in amity. . . .).  Two questions:

1) How true to the facts of life in Elizabethan England is the trope of
proprietorship (as regards fathers owning daughters and husbands owning
fathers)?

2)  Regardless of the "social facts," did other playwrights of the time
use this same trope?

Thanks,

Has anyone seen the CD-ROM advertised in a trailer on video of the
Oliver Parker Othello?  I also heard that the Branagh Hamlet would have
a CD-ROM as well.  Anyone seen that?

I know of CD-Roms for Macbeth (Voyager), BBC R and J, Hamlet:  FOr the
Love of Ophelia, the Arden, and the Norton Shakespeare.  Are there any
others?
