>Julius Caesar takes place in Rome (pre-Italy), not Italy.

I take the bold, daring, rash and temerarious position that Rome is in
Italy.

Comment:        RE: SHK 10.0078 Re: The Theatre

I'm not sure why the link to the Theatre article didn't work. Sorry.

For a day or so after I realized that the link wouldn't work, I couldn't
access the Times site at all.

I just found the article again at
http://www.the-times.co.uk/cgi-bin/BackIssue?1117888

If that doesn't work, go to the Times site
http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/Times/frontpage.html?1117888 then
to the library, select the January 11th issue and go to British News.

I too would be interested in hearing about any further developments
relating to the find.

Comment:        SHK 10.0086 Stratford (UK) Study Course

You may or may not be aware that the RSC has a very interesting policy
about selection for UK-based teachers on their courses.  I teach at a
private high school in UK. I have tried about six times to get on these
courses, of which one hears excellent things. Now, there are clearly
major other reasons for selection, BUT I am a full member of the RSC
mail / club scene in UK and have been for 20 years. I have attended
probably more than 65% of all the productions in that time. BUT can I
get on to the courses for teachers? No chance. It just occurs to me that
the RSC sees either my age, or my gender, OR the fact that I teach in an
apparently privileged sector of UK education, and bins the application.
They have denied this in print - but they would, wouldn't they? In fact
the really sad thing is that we are in remotest North of England to whch
the RSC penetrates once in a blue moon. When they do arrive, the prices
are so astronomic that mere schol kids are seriously put off.  Bringing
back to my college RSC ideas to this neck of the woods from such a
course would serve the RSC's  aesthetic and commercial cause no end in
the sense that a new generation of Cumbrian kids would feel less
excluded form the 'southern RSC' feel. I KNOW they come to Newcastle,
but that is three hours across some of the trickiest terrain in England
in Feb /March - inclement and erratic weather. So USA teachers thank
your lucky stars that the courses are more accessible apparently to you
than they are to some members of the teaching profession in UK.

Dear Don:  Jan. 17, 1999:  I was just skimming Juno and came upon your
Globe model inquiry.  I must presume that you got many responses.  Cut
out models are available from the Birthplace Trust.  I have one made up
in my collection.  Another company - I think it is called The Perfection
Form Company - sells a large cut out model which stands about two feet
high.  Perfection sells loads of teaching materials for Shakespeare.   I
had two of my students put it together and it was in my office for many
years,  When I retired and was trucking my stuff home we couldn't get it
into the truck.  A student took it to his house and I was supposed to
get it there but never did.  I have another still sealedin its original
box.  I think they sold for about  $30 dollars back then.  If no one
wrote you about this, let me know and I will send more details.   Louis
Marder

January 17, 1999

Dear Peter Donaldson:  I know of your work over the years and you may
know of mine with The Shakespeare Newsletter and the Shakespeare Data
Bank project.  I won't send you a history now, but you are doing what I
wanted to do for many years.  To make a long story short, I have about
15 3 1/2 inch disks loaded with material on almost every critical aspect
of Macbeth and other material too. With student assistance I loaded
every document in Schoenbaun's Documentary Life and was going to digest
all the commentary.  Never got to it.  I was going to do the same with
all the plays and sonnets.  But alas... Work is long, time is short....
I am decling into the vale of years.

I was thinking of publishing a Macbeth study disk, but wonder is it
feasible.  Give me a staff and I can lick the world, but alone...I am
stymied.

Is my work the kind of cooperation you are seeking?  I can't get to
Folger.  Can I learn more of your method of operation, etc?  Did you
plan critical commentary or just the textual that you are concentrating
on now?

Sincerely,   Louis Marder --
