Comment:        Re: SHK 12.0114 Re: Orlando

Regarding Rosalind's immediate (or not so immediate, as some would
argue) attachment to Orlando and the question of maternal vs. physical
attraction, I would call list members' attention to the interchange
between Celia and Rosalind in 1.3, just after the wrestling match.

Cel.:  But is all this for your father?

Ros.:  No, some of it is for my child's father...

I would vote for some level of immediate and intensely physical
attraction, though tempered later on by Rosalind's intellectual
attributes.  As Chris pointed out, lust is just one ingredient in the
"finished cake," but it does seem a pretty dominant ingredient from my
point of view, at least in 1.2 and 1.3.

Whiteface

In her essay, "Othello was a white man", in _Alternative Shakespeare's
2_, Dympna Callaghan claims that "on stage, whiteface was probably the
primary way of signifying femininity" (p. 202) in Shakespeare's
theatre.  This seems to me to be a very strong claim.  Does anyone
perhaps know where or how it could be corroborated?

Shakespeare Mystery Novels

A few months ago, someone asked about mystery novels involving
Shakespeare.  Two have come to my attention recently, although I haven't
read either of them yet.

"Thirteenth Night" by Alan Gordon is a sequel to "Twelfth Night."  It
seems to be a rather silly story in which there's a Guild of Fools which
is a sort of ancient spy organization.  Feste is a spy / fool who is
depressed because he recntly failed to prevent the King Lear Tragedy.  A
message comes to him that Orsino is dead, and Feste suspects Malvolio.

"A Mystery of Errors" by Simon Hawke has Shakespeare as a character.
It's the first novel in a planned series.

Can anyone tell me where I might find a copy of Garrick's adaptation of
Romeo and Juliet on the web?

I do not want a pdf or jpg file.

Thanks so much.
