Mark my words Orion.

Subject:        Mark my words Orion.

May I take my little hammer to a couple of accretions of verisimilitude
that have appeared in a recent mail?

"...in the case of a bad quarto [and] the person who took down the
actors' words..."

Both these "verities" provide a suspicious clang when tested by the
wheeltappers of modern opinion. It will not take a mighty Nimrod to
discover this.

Regards,
Graham Hall

SAA and Ferry Service

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.094  Tuesday, 21 January 2003

From:           Mike Jensen <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Date:           Monday, 20 Jan 2003 16:05:23 -0800
Subject:        SAA and Ferry Service

Those attending SAA may want to be aware of a possible transportation
problem.  The Sidney ferry station, it is the station used to go from
the U.S. to Victoria and back, will be closed from early February
through April 12 (the last day of the conference) for renovation. I
wrote Washington State Transit to ask if there was any other way to
Victoria as was told simply:

>Our International Run will be closed from February 1, 2003 through
>April 12, 2003.

So that seems to be that.  I'm not sure, but there may be a back door
way by taking a ferry to Vancouver, then on to the other ferry station
near Victoria, even though the statement from the WST seems to preclude
that.  Perhaps SHAKSPER members in the area can tell us more?  Right now
it looks like the best, and perhaps only route is to fly directly into
Victoria, and for people like me, give up our plans to visit friends on
San Juan Island prior to the conference.

All the best,
Mike Jensen

Shakespeare & the Colonies

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.093  Tuesday, 21 January 2003

Subject:        Shakespeare & the Colonies

Just a "heads up" RE: an article in the Winter 2002-2003 issue of
Colonial Williamsburg.

The opening line WILL suffice, I think:

"Sir Francis Bacon's name might not be well known in Williamsburg were
it not for the belief of some individuals that he wrote Shakespeare's
plays and had them buried in the churchyard of Bruton Parish
[Virginia]."

It goes on. It is well to know what is being said.

Comment:        RE: SHK 14.087 Re: Shakespeare and Research

Bill Arnold asks, "For instance, do we know where he got his background
materials for his ancient history plays: Julius Caesar and Antony and
Cleopatra?"

Based on the translations I've read, I'd say Petrarch.  There are some
very close parallels in both plays.

And surely Latin would have been a component of whatever education his
grammar school offered him?
