Subject:        Concordances

Dear colleagues,

It's come to my (horrified) attention that my campus, a fairly new
undergraduate institution in the interior of British Columbia, doesn't
have a single Shakespeare concordance.

Marvin Spevack's Complete and Systematic Concordance is prohibitively
expensive, at least for me to order.  I would be grateful, therefore, to
know whether those of you who've used or have access to both it and the
Harvard Concordance consider the latter to be largely equivalent to the
former.  I realize that the Harvard Concordance is a shortened version
of the Complete and Systematic Concordance published by Hildesheim, and
which I've always used at other institutions, but I'm wondering whether
most of you find the Harvard Concordance to contain most of what you are
likely to need.

Yours truly,
Sean Lawrence.
