The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 12.0290 Wednesday, 7 February 2001
Date: Tuesday, 6 Feb 2001 22:56:55 -0800
Subject: The Beanstalk
My Oxford Guide to English Lit. says that the tale of Jack and the
Beanstalk has ancient roots, possibly in the Norse tales of Yggdrassil.
Does anyone know if Shakespeare could have known the story?
