An oddity relating to Burgundy is Goneril's 'There is further compliment
of leave-taking between France and him.' (end of 1. 1, same in both Q
and F) Why should Lear be complimenting France? Foakes notes 'After the
way France and Cordelia are sent packing . . . Burgundy's name might be
expected here. A matter of authorial inadvertence?' In my forthcoming
edition for the Oxford Shakespeare, based on Q, I plan to emend to
Burgundy (as Hanmer did.)

I'm trying to get my hands on some of the canonical scholarship texts
that everyone seems to quote: Granville-Barker and VanDoren (Mark).  Big
problems.

VanDoren seems to be totally out of print. I can't even get listing of
his Shakespeare writings back when they were in print.

Granville-Barker's PREFACES TO SHAKESPEARE seem to come in two flavors:
individual volumes on a single play, or in a "complete" multi-volume
set- sometimes three volumes, sometimes twelve. (Used, of course. All
out of print.) Do you the anthologies contain the same depth of
discussion as the single volumes? Which is the real "complete" set?
These, at least, I can find in a number of the better used bookstores
around the Bay, and online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Any wisdom on these matters?

The following message from Paul Halsall <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> has been
posted to the Humanist List and I feel that some members of SHAKSPER may
also find it appalling. An Sonjae, Sogang Univeristy, Seoul

The message runs:

American University in DC has long provided a major Internet repository
of early church and later catholic documents. These were established by
members of a number of email lists long based at american.edu,
especially members of the "Free Catholic List." The major collections
are under the URL http://listserv.american.edu/catholic/

In recent weeks American University has informed all non-AU lists based
at its servers that they must move. This is inconvenient, and will out
date many print based references to such lists, but I suppose AU has the
right to change its policy. (It did, however, long ago promise such
lists that they could run from AU in perpetuity.)

Today I have learned that not only is AU booting the various email
lists, but will also destroy the directories associated with those
lists. This means that the entire library of texts on church history
will be destroyed. The date of destruction has been specified as
Thanksgiving weekend. Needless to say I, at least, am unhappy about a
willful destruction of a library.

Currently Altavista reports 4757 links pointing to the Catholic Files
library, which gives some idea of the disruption american.edu is about
to visit upon users of online texts.

Some people may think that this is worth protesting to AU staff, AU
campus newspapers, and perhaps in other venues. For others, this would
be a good time to download the texts in question.

Note that many of the texts are available at other sites, but none have
quite the range of the AU collection. Moreover many of the other sites
now carry advertising, promote non-academic agendas, or practice a
rotation of URLs (which makes stable links hard to maintain.)

The contact person at AU appears to be Ann Hennings,

Our university server was ( and will be ) into Y2K/defense mode shortly.
Did I miss the ending? Did she accept the proposal?

Hi Ron,

I don't have any suggestions right now, but I am a hopeless romantic and
I just want to wish you the best of luck.  I think this is one of the
most romantic things I have ever heard.  Let us know how it goes.

Ok, I'm hooked.  Where's the website for your honeymoon suite?

On a serious note, you could yet bring S. in for a festive anniversary
celebration by holding a costumed and decorated reading of MND.

"bless this place...in safety rest."

Dear Ron,

Congratulations,  It sounds like a grand event you both will remember
forever.  Will would have been proud of you.  He always loved a good
show!
