If anyone can tell me whether Middleton & Rowley's 'The World Tossed at
Tennis (1620) is available online, I'd be very grateful.  Not having a
subscription, it seems I can't get access to LION or EEBO.  Any
suggestions?

Comment:        SHK 14.1294 Re: Shakespeare and European Politics

"I say, for instance, that Julius Caesar could be rewritten as a modern
play with exactly the same individual conflicts and duplicities as the
original - not the same poetry, mind."

er... you mean "the same words"...? What is a Shakespeare play, if not
the poetry, the words on the page or in the actors' mouths?

"There is no European tradition for the centering of the individual..."

????? !!!!! ?????

You can buy Burckhardt cheaply, now, in the World's Classics series! He
might be worth a look!

Although perhaps Sam really would think that Michelangelo is just
"decorative arts" and "corporate".

It seems odd to think of the USA as essentially atomistic and
anti-corporate. It is a federation, after all. And its federal
constitution purports to be enacted by "We, the people of the United
States", and designed to form "a more perfect union".

That seems like an odd requirement for answering a post. I don't believe
that SHAKSPER is intended to be an autobiographical forum; in any event,
we are all required to post a brief bio in the archives. Judging from
your web page
http://academic.claremontmckenna.edu/faculty/profile.asp?Fac=22 your
life has been a lot more interesting than mine, but I'm a lot more
interested in why the enclitic microphases were counted incorrectly in
your study.

Re: "But me no buts"

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1301 Re: "But me no buts"

After searching through the list archives with my meager computer
skills, I couldn't quite find the entire thread about the phrase, "But
me no buts." So, at the risk of repeating what someone else has likely
already shared, I believe this phrase is an intentional, comedic
corruption of Gaunt's words in Richard II, who originally said, "Grace
me no grace, nor uncle me no uncle.  I'm no traitor's uncle, and that
word grace in an ungracious mouth is but profane."  (My apologies for
not having the exact citation, but I'm going from memory).  Perhaps this
is why "But me no buts" sounds familiar - but don't quote me no quotes
on that, because I'm not absolutely sure.

Jane Alexander to Speak on Tuesday, July 1

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.1307  Friday, 27 June 2003

Jane Alexander Reflects Upon her Roles
As Acclaimed Actress and Arts Leader

Tuesday, July 1

CASH BAR   11:30 A.M.
LUNCHEON    12:30 P.M.
PROGRAM   1:00 P.M.

1526 NEW HAMPSHIRE AVENUE NW (one block north of Dupont Circle),
   home of THE WOMAN'S NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CLUB, which is hosting this
event

ESU and SHAKESPEARE GUILD MEMBERS, $35
NON-MEMBERS, $40

During a noon gathering that will place the focus on one of today's most
versatile and influential performing artists, Jane Alexander will
discuss not only "Ghosts," the Ibsen play in which she's currently
starring at The Shakespeare Theatre, but the dozens of other scripts
she's enacted with such brilliance. No stranger to the Nation's Capital,
Ms. Alexander rose to prominence in a 1965 Arena Stage premiere of "The
Great White Hope," which she and James Earl Jones carried to Tony
laurels on Broadway and from there to a film that garnered its heroine a
well-deserved Oscar nomination.

Among Ms. Alexander's many films are triumphs like "All the President's
Men "(1976) and "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979). On television she's given us
memorable achievements like "Eleanor and Franklin" (1977), "Playing for
Time" (1981), for which she won an Emmy, "Testament" (1983), and "Malice
in Wonderland" (1989).  In many respects, however, the role for which
we're most indebted to Ms. Alexander is the one she played during the
mid-1990s, when she defended, and ultimately preserved, the National
Endowment for the Arts from those who'd sought to eliminate the agency.
She's eloquently recorded her thoughts about a tumultuous NEA
chairmanship in "Command Performance: An Actress in the Theatre of
Politics" (2000).

To reserve space for what promises to be a lively and wide-ranging
conversation, and to arrange for payment by check or credit card, please
