Subject:        Two Articles in Fall Issue of ANQ

Is there general agreement with my conclusions drawn from textual
evidence that John Heminges took the part of Egeus in DREAM and doubled
that of Puck?  That his memory of his performances gives validity to the
Folio stage directions over the Quarto in such scenes, which with
Condell he edited in this manner--and for Don Pedro in MUCH ADO, for
Marcus in TITUS, and for the King in LLL?

From different evidence four endings for three different occasions
should be recognized in the DREAM text--the third, the fairy masque, was
presented late in the evening of May 2, for example, following the
performance of the full play on May Day 1594.  The proofs are in my two
articles in the fall issue of ANQ.

Comments and responses are welcome.

William B. Hunter
