Subject:        Hall's Chronicle

Re: Dave Evett's game of "Humiliation," I once had a graduate professor
who made all students confess whether or no they had read the entire
_Faerie Queene_. He maintained that in 30 years of graduate teaching,
only two students had done so.

Why did he ask this question? I dunno, but I think it had to do with
putting us in our place.

I'm sure lots of us have looked at the sections in Hall peculiarly
relevant to particular elements of particular plays, even if we never
sat down and read the whole book straight through (whatever that
means--I hardly need to tell this forum that there's reading and
reading, casual and intense, active and passive).

Selectively,
Dave Evett

Yes, and thank you very much. Maybe surprised is no the right word. Let
me think.

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell
