Of course, James Thurber shows how this can be done quite nicely in "The
Macbeth Murder Mystery."

Or perhaps on "not" or "grow'?

Gower describes two events: The killing of the boys and the spoliation
of Henry's tent.  But only the latter is ascribed as a reason for
killing the prisoners, at least according to the pointing in the
Riverside.  Of course, different punctuation can lead to a different
reading, and WS was not always clear in such matters.  A long pause
before "wherefore" would likely ascribe the killings to both causes;
although I still think the immediate antecedent ("they have burned and
carried away all that was in the King's tent") carries more freight.

I don't agree that Gower has the order wrong as between the two events
he mentions.  The immediate cause of the killing was, as we saw, the
renewed French attack, making the presence of the prisoner's a
hindrance.  Gower doesn't mention this, and I think his is the only
reference to the spoliation of the royal tent, so we don't know whether
that was before or after the boys were slaughtered.

Re: the availability of Stratford Shakespeare Festival Shrew

I know that the Stratford Ontario, CA. Festival Theater Store has the
video because I have it.  It is a delightful performance.  I feel it is
far superior to the Burton /Taylor version when using it to teach the
play to my high school students.

Comment:        Re: SHK 10.0510 Assorted Questions

Just a little help with the Amazon site.  You can do a search by
publication date and subject.  I've done it with Shakespeare as the key
word and "after 1998" as the date of publication and got back not only a
"ton" of the most recent publications but information for "on order "
books up to 2006 as the planned publication date. (I also spent way too
much on what I found <bg>)
