Comment:        RE: SHK 10.1883 Re: Productions of Much Ado

I'm a little surprised by Paul Swanson's comment that Innogen "may or
may not be a character" in Much Ado.  I draw his attention to the simple
fact that in Q1 (1600) her name appears twice in the head titles of two
early scenes.

She's there all right.  The question is: what is she doing there? and
what does her presence in these scenes contribute to the meanings that
we generate?
