I am not in the academy, but am rather a 56 year old lawyer at the
Boston law firm of Ropes & Gray.  I'm a magna cum laude graduate of
Brown University (1967), where I majored in physics but learned to love
Shakespeare through several courses with the late Elmer Blistein.  I'm a
1970 cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School.  I've read all of
Shakespeare's plays and have enjoyed productions in London and Stratford
of Hamlet, Macbeth (with Derek Jacobi), A Midsummer Night's Dream (my
first realization of how laugh-aloud funny a Shakespeare comedy could
be), Twelfth Night, Julius Caesar (at the reconstructed Globe Theatre),
King Lear, Henry IV Part 2, and The Tempest.  I've read scholarly works
on Shakespeare and have enjoyed the rendition of "all of Shakespeare's
plays in 90 minutes" by The Reduced Shakespeare Company.

I am writing to request inclusion in your Shaksper electronic discussion
group. My desire is primarily fueled by my personal interest in the work
of Shakespeare (one of the greatest summers of my life was the one
during which I read all of the history plays in chronological order
according to the subjects of the plays, rather than in order of
publication.). I love to be around other people who also love
Shakespeare's work. I'm avid in my desire to hear and read other
peoples' understandings. I have never studied Shakespeare formally
except for one one-semester course at the University of New Orleans. I'm
just in love with him. For me, Shakespeare, Dostoevski, and Faulkner
share space on a pinhead. I do have some professional interest, although
the professional interest came directly from my personal interest. I
teach high school literature and writing, and several years ago created
a Shakespeare elective course at my school, which is extremely popular.
The only prerequisite for joining the elective course is a love for
Shakespeare's work. There's nothing in the world like being in a room
full of people with the same love, especially when they're adolescents
and see in such a fresh way, and whose love is pure and beyond their
understanding.

My name is Fabricio Chalub, I was born in 1976 and currently residing in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  I work at the Computing Department of the
Graduate School of Economics at Getulio Vargas Foundation (EPGE/FGV).
My interest in S. is purely personal and I wanted to join SHAKSPER to
listen (hopefully contribute?) to what more devoted people have to say
about his works.  [I may have a project for the future involving a web
site on my mind, but this is nothing concrete.]

My name is Katie Zaffrann and I am in my third year pursuing a Bachelor
of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre at Syracuse University.  Syracuse
has a highly ranked and well-renowned Drama program and this fall I will
be studying abroad in London through our program there, which has a
partnership with London's Globe Theatre.  In addition to my study of
Shakespeare's text for the performance aspect, I am an English minor and
will be taking a number of classes to get different viewpoints on and
ways of approaching his works.  While abroad, I also will be beginning
my thesis project in hopes of graduating with honors, and am considering
a Shakespearean emphasis for that project.  I read about the listserv in
a New York Times article, and am excited about its possibilities with my
future work.

*Judson, William Haddon <

My background is in engineering physics, both solid state and liquid
state.  Currently I am involved in designing data base architecture for
MRP business systems: Fourth Shift Manufacturing Software Systems.  And
general data base design. My interest in William Shakespeare started as
soon as I could read.  I have read every piece of Shakespeare's works
that I could find.  I am interested in everything and anything regarding
Shakespeare.  I feel that Shakespeare had an excellent grasp of human
nature and a lucid and erudite way of expressing his thoughts, feeling
and emotions.  At one time I tried to write in a similar vain as
Shakespeare, but it was not even close to rank amateur. My second
literary interest is in works of William Congeve (the Playwright).  I
discovered both Congreves from both an engineering stand point, the
Congreves pump and Congreves rockets (Sir William Congreve), and the
butchering of William Congreves (the playwright) quotes from his "The
Mourning Bride".  "Hell hath" rather than "Hell has", etc. I feel that
to some extent William Congreve, the playwright, had continued along
Shakespeare's direction.
