Comment:        Re: SHK 11.2067 Book Announcement

Hi there,

Diana's book is another hole in the dyke of the 'Orthodox' authorship
question. (Is Shakespeare the sea or the dyke)? Apparently from the
blurbs she has new evidence that Shakes was indeed a shakedown artist
and some aristocrat wrote the lot. Who? She doesn't say in the blurb,
but I fear it's Looney's friend.

She has a link on her author's page to Dave Kathman and Terry Ross'
site. Anybody have any info on this new unbiased evidence she's
presenting? Or is it a new bias on old evidence? Sorry I'm too cheap to
spend the forty dollars and find out. Maybe Diana herself can reply to
me off list. The authorship question being taboo.

I wait with bated breath paddling in the swirling pool at the foot of
the dyke.

Yours,
W.

[Editor's Note: William is correct. Any responses should take place
privately and not on the list. I posted Diana Price's announcement
because it corresponded to the guidelines that were established a year
or so ago. I post William Sutton's response for more information, but I
will not post discussion of the content or arguments associated with the
work. -HMC]

MartianusCapella.com, a new online metajournal, is calling for papers in
all disciplines. The site's purpose is to promote cross disciplinary
research, open discussion and synthesis, as well as to provide an easy
way to search through multiple documents for specific keywords and
topics. Even though we have just opened the site, and only recently
issued our first call for papers, MartianusCapella.com has already had
more than 4000 visitors.

Peggy O'Brien and Kiko

Subject:        Peggy O'Brien and Kiko

Peggy O'Brien--of the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Shakespeare Set
Free series --is in cyberspace, trying to figure out about how this
technology can be really useful in teaching and learning.  She's Chief
Learning Officer at Kiko, Inc. (Kiko stands for Knowledge In, Knowledge
Out), and she's begun a Shakespeare Center there
(www.kiko.com/shakespeare).

The lessons and activities in the Center at this point are really
good---they stimulate inquiry and extended thinking in students of many
ages, they're engaging, and they use the web in a way that's both
compelling and sensible.  But she's looking for this to be an active
gathering place on the web, focused on teaching Shakespeare. Check it
out, and participate!

This is a chance to shape a hot, new website. Communicate with Peggy
about how you'd like to see this Shakespeare Center evolve, and send
along your questions, challenges and successes teaching Shakespeare, and
other contributions.  I have had my own graduate and undergraduate
students creating lessons on Kiko and Peggy has included them as well.

Best,

Spit in His Mouth

My favorite stage direction in not _Exit, pursued by a bear_.  It is in
Middleton and Dekker's The Roaring Girl 2.1, when Master Gallipot _Spits
in the dog's mouth_.

Andor Gomme's New Mermaid glosses this as obscure, but mentions Henn's
idea that it is _a device to ensure that the dog memorized its master's
scent_.

Yeah.  My dog so needs the extra help.

Does anyone know an alternate gloss?  Also, assuming there was an actual
dog on stage, any speculation on how they got the dog to go along with
this?  I'm not suggesting it is impossible, it is probably quite
possible, but there are some problems to solve to get a dog to do this.

Finally, did anyone see the RSC's production, I don't know, maybe 15
years ago?  Assuming this was not cut, how was it handled?  I am 10
months from getting to The Shakespeare Center Library, but will check
the prompt book next time I'm there if no one knows.

All the best,
Mike Jensen
