I read your Washington Post article this morning at work and found it
very interesting.  I'm a college student, now a senior, at Fairleigh
Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey.  I'm not by any stretch of
the imagination a scholar of Shakespeare, but I love what I do know of
his works.  I'm planning to study at Wroxton College in the fall,
Fairleigh Dickinson's campus in England, and a large part of my desire
is that their Shakespeare classes are taught by members of the Royal
Shakespeare Company and include trips to the Globe theater to see
plays.  Your discussion group sounds fascinating.  As I've implied, I'm
not sure how much of substance I might be able to offer, but I would
love to be able to be a quiet part of the conversations.

appropriation of Shakespeare in these three European cities in the 1930s
and 1940s.

I am really looking forward to becoming a part of SHAKSPER.  I have been
a fan of Shakespeare's for many years.  I am continually amazed by his
use of language.  And I am very interested in engaging in dialogues with
the members of the list.  As a high school English teacher, I am seeking
to learn more about Shakespeare and his plays both for my own growth and
enjoyment and for use in the classroom.  Again, I really look forward to
"talking" with all of you about some of the greatest literature written
in English.

I was born in 1957 to parents with a great love for books and learning.
Spanish is my mother-tongue and, as I was raised in Mexico City, it was
the language in which I first learned to read and write.  I have been a
voracious reader since the age of five.  During my elementary school
years I spent many an afternoon with Jules Verne, Charles Dickens, Mark
Twain, Louisa May Alcott and Homer  (yrs, I loved The Odyssey, and
Little Women too).  Later came Don Quixote and a first encounter with
Shakespeare in a Spanish translation.  My English became good enough to
tackle "David Copperfield" or "Wuthering Heights" when I was leaving
high school.  By that time I began to read in French.  A strong,
parallel interest in Biology made me go for a medical degree instead of
Literature or Modern Languages.  I became a psychiatrist and, years
later, a Freudian psychoanalyst.  Reaching back to my first love for
Literature, my main interest in Psychoanalysis lies now on the study of
creative processes To me, the great literary classics are more
inspiring, more illuminating on the subject of human nature than most
psychoanalytical writers.  Up to a point, I find Harold Bloom's opinion
"All Freud is in Shakespeare" to be true.  Following Dr Robert Coles, I
ask my students to read from the classics whenever I teach a course for
psychotherapists in trainig at the Centro de Estudios de Posgrado de la
Asociaci
