Thus Terence Hawkes:

>Dear Rick Jones: You write: 'This discussion began as a response to
>Terence Hawkes's assertion that Shakespeare's "illiterate" audience
>helped create Romeo and Juliet.'  Not me, guv.  In my comments on
>Shakespeare's audience, I was careful to make no use of the word
>'illiterate'.

I apologize.  His term was indeed "non-literate."  I fail to see that it
makes much difference in context, but I grant that I misquoted.

A Polonius on the outside with Iago on the inside is just what a
president with the appearance of a Hotspur and the substance of a
Falstaff deserves.

Hi, Tim,

The MTC (Melbourne Theatre Company) do some fine, mainstage
Shakespeare.  Occasionally the Playbox Theatre does studio Shakespeare
and sometimes Japanese. The Merricreek players do outdoor Shakespeare in
the Botanic Gardens during the summer. Melbourne Uni's theatre sometimes
puts on a Shakespeare during term time.

I divide my time between the University of Illinois and Melbourne. One
of my projects is CyberShakespeare <www.cybershakespeare.uiuc.edu> which
I developed with some Melbourne multimedia people. What are you doing
there?

Cheers,
Michael
