Subject:        Charles Kemble

A Utrecht colleague of mine is working on Charles Kemble in Paris during
the 1820s. Could anyone tell me if there is a standard work containing
illustrations of early-nineteenth-century stage practice in France?

Sincerely,
Ton Hoenselaars

I just got my copy of Shaheen's book in the mail today from AUP.  It's a
wonderfully complete work which will not be surpassed for a long time,
if ever.  It's already got a prominent place on my shelf of Shakespeare
reference books.

Subject:        WB's _Popular_--Romeo Reference

In last night's (October 21) episode of the WB's new tv show Popular, a
bad girl who turns out with some proding to be sort of good calls out to
a jock boy named Josh from the bedroom of a mother of a girlfriend,
"Romeo, O ROmeo, whrefore art thou Romeo."  Josh looks back at his two
nerd friends with a smile as he climbs through the window.  One of the
nerdy guys says to the other "We'll never have a chance for a girl like
that."  The guy later walks out on her as they are about to have sexual
intercourse when the heroine of the show exposes her plot to humiliate a
nerdy girl she has pretended to befriend.

Subject:        Othello Question

Hi I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I'm trying to track down an
essay I've come across somewhere which discusses the image/logic/idea of
prostitution and the brothel in Othello. Any suggestions would be very
much appreciated. Thanks, Belinda
