In a small but quality company such as the Newnan Community Theatre
Company, devoted as we are to providing a haven for the citizen artist,
we cast the best at hand.  We never thought of ourselves as being trendy
or politically correct; we just used whom we wanted to use.  Race?
Sometimes not even gender is a key to casting around here.  Wheee!

A Lit. Crit. Textbook

Subject:        A Lit. Crit. Textbook

Hi, everyone,

I know this is not strictly Shakespearean matter, but all those in the
teaching profession will no doubt see the connection. Can anyone on the
List recommend a good, up-to-date, textbook for a fourth-year course on
literary criticism that covers the area fairly comprehensively, but also
emphasizes the latest approaches? We, in the department here, have found
out that (amazingly in this age of literary theory!) this is not such as
easy task. We need a title to order by next week. Help anyone? All
suggestions are welcome, on or off the list.

Gratefully, Abdulla al-Dabbagh

I don't know either, but if you haven't done so it might be worth
looking at the multi-volume collection of documents edited by E.M.
Tenison, _Elizabethan England: being the History of this Country in
Relation to All Foreign Princes_ (Royal Leamington Spa, 1953).
