Subject:        Revenge

Re Hardy Cook's posting of my submission as "Book Recommendation":

It certainly is that, but for the benefit of those who monitor their
reading of this list, I meant the recommendation of Geoffrey Aggeler's
book for those who have been discussing revenge.

Thanks,
Yvonne Bruce

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0923 Re: Revenge

In Thomas Nashe's *Unfortunate Traveler* we find revenge and justice
identified:  "Reuenge is the glorie of armes, & the highest performance
of valure: reuenge is whatsoeuer we call law or justice" (*Works*, ed.
McKerrow 2.326).  But the speaker is the savage Cutwolfe, ranting from
the scaffold prior to his own execution-not, perhaps, a normative
source.
