Sean Lawrence notes Frobisher's habit of abducting folk from the north
and cites some literature on the subject. There is a rather poignant
account given in the recently- published The Queen's Conjuror by
Benjamin Woolley that makes one stroke the icicles on one's beard and
wonder if, like the Swiss Maid, they died unhappy.

"Iliom," or "Illium," is the residence of the Trojan royal family, a
short distance from the city of Troy itself and outside the city's
walls.  Cressida lives in her father Calchas' house within the city
walls.

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1501 Antonio's Kinsman

For Clifford:

Solanio ".... Here comes Bassanio"

 Nod and flourish to Bassanio  and the words
 addressed to him, to Bassanio, Antonio's protege:

"Your most noble kinsmen" with the sarcasm that I believe is there for
these less assimilated Portuguese conversos, who are not enough valued
to greet or to remain in their company.

Yours, Florence Amit

I would like to suggest that because there are a limited number of
essential relationships, and, concomitantly, there are a limited number
of essential conflicts.  While the window dressing of the conflict may
change, the basic conflicts of any story is one which emerges from the
interaction of its characters.  So, yes, I do believe that the persons
Shakespeare met in early modern England embodied all the conflicts which
ever, and could ever take place even though the specifics of the
conflicts may vary.  Elizabethans were simply people whose history may
be different to our own but whose basic humanity was the same.
