Subject:        Call for Assistance on the Compendium of Ren. Drama

Dear SHAKSPERians,

The Compendium of Renaissance Drama is near to completion, but it needs
assistance from people like yourselves to get it finished.

The COMPENDIUM OF RENAISSANCE DRAMA is a CD-ROM database edited by Brian
Jay Corrigan and a board of advisors and editors that includes Andrew
Gurr, A.R. Braunmuller, J.L. Styan, Robert F. Willson, Stacy Mulder,
David Nicol, and Jeffrey Kahan. It contains thousands of files: videos,
finding lists, images, biographies, dictionaries, maps, and synopses of
every extant play from the English Renaissance. It has been in
preparation for ten years and is soon to be completed, but it needs your
help.

The final phase requires a team of scholars willing to provide brief
synoptic character notes. The work itself is fairly simple (and most
congenial): merely read an assigned play and complete an electronic
synopsis form (which will be supplied to you). It is a
fill-in-the-blanks format.  Many famous and delightful plays are still
available-especially in the Fletcher and Shirley canons. We are also
seeking scholars with a taste for the less well-known works.

This is your invitation to participate in this internationally important
project.

The CORD was unveiled at the August 2002 meeting of the International
Shakespeare Conference in Stratford-upon-Avon and won a very warm
reception.  It will be the subject of a Shakespeare Association of
America workshop at Victoria in April 2003. The CORD will be a central
repository of information, a convenient place to begin and conduct
research. It also offers attractive, full-colour (and many animated)
presentations for use in the classroom.

Won't you join the forty-plus international scholars already engaged on
this project?
