I have a question about the complete Arden Shakespeare.  I am getting
conflicting information from the Amazon UK and US sites.  The US edition
has 1200 pages while the UK one has 1350.  Is just due to a difference
in size or is there some other sort of difference between the two
editions.  Footnotes perhaps.  Does anybody know?

Is anybody else detecting the subtle parallels the spin doctors seem to
making (and much of the media seems to be going for) between these two
characters?

Oh, well, I hope Warren Beatty does run; he'll make GWB seem like
Hotspur!.....

In the video version of "Playing Shakespeare," Richard Pascoe and
(pre-dame) Judi Dench give a wonderful performance of the Patience on a
Monument scene. Pascoe's amazing reading of "Boy, thou speaks masterly"
shows that this scene is what screenwriting teachers call Plot Point 2.

Comment:        Re: SHK 10.1445 Re: Bullough

Here I am, patiently watching as the guessing goes on.

My wife was taught by Geoffrey Bullough. He once corrected a student who
pronounced his name as 'bullock.'  I knew him quite well later. The
pronunciation both of us use when we speak of him, as we often do with
affection, is 'Bull-oh', rhyming with the first two syllables of
'pullover.'

He was a kind, gentle, courteous man, full of encouragement both for his
students and for younger colleagues. And of course his 'Narrative and
Dramatic Sources' is a classic of Shakespeare scholarship. I sometimes
wonder whether anyone will give us a non-Narrative and Dramatic
counterpoint - Shakespeare's local sources.

Stanley Wells-a link with the past, as Max Beerbohm once spoke of
himself (not without his habitual irony).

Does anyone know anything about video CDs?  Are they better or worse
than VHS?  Worse than DVD?
