Dear SHAKSPEReans,

The list is receiving hundreds of messages a day infected with the
SoBig.F virus. Rest assured they are all deleted immediately by my
anti-virus program. I am not infected and the server, being an UNIX
machine, is not susceptible to this virus.

However, my understanding is that this virus not only sends itself to
everyone in an infected person's address list but it also steals other
addresses and includes them as the sender - spoofing.

From messages I have received, it appears that This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is
being spoofed and used to appear to be the sender of the
virus-containing messages.

If you have not updated your anti-virus software, please automatically
delete any messages you receive with the following subject lines no
matter who they appear to be from, including myself:

Missing Pages from Grebanier... Request

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.1682  Tuesday, 26 August 2003

Subject:        Missing Pages from Grebanier... Request

Two months ago, the discussion of Grebanier's Heart of Hamlet was
fascinating, and I tried to buy the book, but no copies were available,
new or used.  I do not have access to academic interlibrary loan, so I
did a public library interlibrary loan.  After six weeks, a copy
appeared, which was missing two sets of pages, 151 through 160, and 231
through 237.  I would appreciate very much if someone with access to the
book would copy those pages and mail them to me.

I would of course reimburse the expenses.

Please email me off list for arrangements.

Michael B. Luskin

World Rates Shakespeare Twice as High as Brits Do

Subject: 14.1669 World Rates Shakespeare Twice as High as Brits
Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1669 World Rates Shakespeare Twice as High as Brits
Do

I have to confess that I find great relief in this "Great Briton"
business, since I sometimes get the feeling that only Americans are
capable of such overwhelming public stupidity. What a treat to find the
rest of the world just as idiotic.

Not that it isn't useful. The ranking of cultural icons is clearly an
important clue to the mental and emotional processes of the
icon-worshippers. Such as they are.

But it does make one glum about the prospects for democracy.

Cheers,
don

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1673 Re: Psalm 46

James Joyce's FINNEGAN'S WAKE consists of 212,679 words.

What, do you think, is word number 106339?

Could this be a coincidence?

I doubt it.

Riverrun,

Thirteenth Night

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1671 Thirteenth Night

This, from C David Frankel, is, of course, appropriate:

>It might help, sometimes, to think of theatrical performance more in the
>tradition of jazz.  The texts exist, in their various formats, and
>people do with them what they will.  No performance, either on stage,
>film, or video, will ever be "authentic" to the "original" text and
>"original" performance.

But perhaps it's the wrong analogy. If Coriolanus is performed in 75
minutes, half the "music" itself is missing.
