The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 12.1780 Tuesday, 17 July 2001

Subject: Winter's Tale
Sorry to be a pest, but I'm about to be away from my email for a month
and I wanted to mention that in one of my papers on The Winter's Tale I
argue that Autolycus is identified in part as a fertility god because
among his wares are "pins and poking sticks of steel, what maidens lack
from head to heel..."
"Spices for our Sheepshearing: the Three Masks of Autolycus and the Role
of the Dramatist in the Jacobean State" available on request when I get
back from Europe August 15.
Happy Bastille Day
