To continue the AVENGERS thread, the book of the movie includes
quotations from THE TEMPEST at the head of each chapter.  Alas, the book
is no more witty or interesting than the movie is.

Cheers,
Douglas Lanier

I order my BBC-HarperCollins CD-Roms from Blackwells on-line Oxford
Bookshop via the Web which offers a secure link for credit-card details.

I just got back myself.

I found some of the gimmickry in C of E got in the way of the story
(especially the inflatable Dr Pinch) but 1 H IV was a brilliant use of
concept to clarify meaning.

It's a shame you didn't get to MSND. It was worth the trip all my
itself. The best I've seen since Peter Brook in 1970 I'm not sure what
you mean by "acting talent" ..is there a place you can think of that
attracts a better caliber of actor?

Their "School for Scandal" was delightful, too.

"Polton" might be Dalton but is more probably Fernando Pulton, author of
_De pace regnis et regi, viz., A treatise declaring which be the great
and general offenses of the realme_ (1609).

There's a fine article in the current issue of Criticism on the
queerness of the sonnets by, I believe Christopher Worley.
