Subject:        Blackness and Gender

I have finally gotten a chance to somewhat catch up on SHAKSPER posts.
I was keenly interested in the discussions about the "race" of Cleopatra
and Rosalinde.  Though the discussion has died out, I wanted to offer
the following source for an interesting discussing of the relationship
between race and gender.  It is Kim Hall's "Things of Darkness." I have
not read this book in a while and it's currently lent out to a friend,
so I'm not sure if she treats these characters specifically, but it is
an intriguing treatment of the ways race and gender often become
entangled, linguistically and otherwise.

Yours,
