Subject:        Original Onions Sought

Hello,

I don't know if this is the proper place, but I am looking for a copy of
the original 1919 C. T. Onions' A Shakespeare Glossary for a
Shakespearian on our staff. If anyone has a copy they might be willing
to depart with, or know where a copy is being sold, please let me know.
An Internet search turns up only the revised edition.

On a similar note, this professor laments that the original contained
additional comments that were deleted in the 1989 revision. These
comments, apparently, are a sad loss to this classic work. Does anyone
have a similar or additional opinions?

Thanks for your time and any information you can provide.

Sincerely,
P. Timothy Ervin

Subject:        Q: John Hall

There is a small but interesting article in this week's Pharmaceutical
Press relating to Dr. John Hall, Shakespeare's son-in-law. It seems he
wrote detailed case notes that are of considerable medical and
historical interest, I wonder if Shakespeare used him for medical or
pharmacological information when he needed it ?    Simon Spiero.

Subject:        Journals on Shakespeare

For my research I am raking out possible journal resources, exclusively
on Shakespeare. Could anyone provide me with a list of reliable ones?
Some sources that could be titled as "major" I can access at my
university library seem to be <Shakespeare Quarterly>, <Shakespeare
Survey>, and <Shakespeare Studies>. Am I only one who can not find
another widely recognized materials on Shakespeare? I am looking forward
to having your generous support.

Thank you in advance for you help,
Hoon-jong Lee

Subject:        Reduced Text of Othello

I am a college student working on a paper, attempting to turn Othello
into a one-act play, focusing on Iago as the "master therapist," who
uses many expert psychological techniques to confuse and deceive Othello
into murdering Desdemona. I have out all characters besides Othello,
Iago, Desdemona, Emilia and Cassio. I have been questioning whether
cutting characters like Roderigo would weaken my version, or if these 5
characters are enough to keep the integrity of the play. Please give me
any opinions or suggestions on how I can most effectively use the
characters to present my theme most effectively.
