Subject:        New Folger Series

Having recently embarked on a three-year campaign to read all the plays
in roughly chronological order, I've been reviewing the status of my
collection. Among the volumes are the 22 volumes currently available in
the New Folger series-I managed to pick up a copy of the latest, 2 Henry
IV, last week.

When I tried to get info about future volumes in the series, though, I
was surprised to see that Simon & Schuster's web site doesn't
acknowledge the existence of the series. (It's always possible that I
missed it-the site is clearly oriented toward the new and flashy.) The
only info I could find was at the Folger Library site, which indicated
that "Antony & Cleopatra" is scheduled for the fall.

Is the Folger Library site the best place to go for this, or is there
somewhere else? (Amazon.Com is no help: the old and new volumes are
mingled, and reissues like "Two Gentlemen of Verona" are dated by the
reissue, in this case 1995. And by the way.... a synopsis of TGV at
Amazon.Com begins thus: "Blork and his friends run into a prehistoric
poodnoobie when they accidentally travel back in time to Splat." Somehow
this episode escaped the attention of all previous editors.)

Subject:        James' Boys

The accession of King James in 1603 unified the thrones of England and
Scotland. Can anyone direct me to evidence of anxiety among the English
population (or aristocracy) that James might elect to divide the crowns
of England and Scotland between his sons?

Many thanks.

Subject:        Julius Caesar

March 20,1999

I am looking for a Japanese translation of Julius Caesar.
I have a Japanese student who is unable to read fluently in English.  He
will be reading Julius Caesar in his regular English Literature class
soon. I teach English as a Second Language.

I would appreciate any help.

Thank You.

Margaret Weldon
