Edna:

I can confirm that the 3-column Insult List indeed was Jerry Maguie's
work.  He created it at the Folger Library's Teaching Shakespeare's
Language Institute in the summers of 1988-89.  That NEH institute which
was directed by Peggy O'Brien was the incubator for the 3 volumes of
"Shakespeare Set Free," (Washington Square Press) edited by Peggy.  That
list appeared in the first volume.

Jerry also created a Shakespearean Compliment list which appeared in the
first issue of "Shakespeare" magazine.

By the way, thanks for wanting to give Jerry credit for what has been an
oft copied and oft uncredited teaching idea.

Best,
Mike LoMonico, editor

I've asked those whose memories work better than mine to get me the
exact date, but I know that Jerry introduced the insult list and
exercise at the Folger Shakespeare Library's Teaching Shakespeare
Institute something like 15 years ago. The list and been used and
modified by many, but to my knowledge, Jerry is its "parent and
originator." (BTW: My last correspondence to Jerry, about two years ago,
was returned. If anyone knows of his whereabouts, would you let me
know?)

Cheers,
