I don't know if this is quite what Huizung Perng is calling for, but the
occasion may be right for me to announce that a substantial addition to
the site of the Internet Shakespeare Editions is now on line. It is an
extensive resource on Shakespeare's life and the context in which he was
writing-there are sections on British Renaissance society, political
history, intellectual history, and literary history, together with
reference materials (chronologies, bibliography).

The site is aimed at an introductory college/university level. Those who
use it can at any time click on the icon of a book to be taken to a
bibliography that deals with the current topic, and thus move on to
traditional research in a library.

Like any self-respecting Internet site, the Life and Times is
continually being constructed and reconstructed. I welcome any
suggestions for corrections and improvements from SHAKSPER subscribers.

The address of the site: <http://web.uvic.ca/shakespeare/Library/SLT/>.

I have also put on line some sample performance materials from a recent
production of Romeo and Juliet here at the University of Victoria, to
give some idea of the way that an Internet site can make research and
teaching materials of this kind available. Again, I welcome comments,
suggestions, and contributions.

The Annex of the Internet Shakespeare Editions now has draft transcripts
of almost all Folio texts, and a substantial number of quartos as well:
