Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0106 Lusty Apes in Hell?

According to R.W. Dent, it was proverbial in the 16th Century.

Dent dates the rape notion to Peele's,  The Arraignment of Paris, 1581:
"All that be Dians maides are vowed to halter [hang or lead to the
gallows] apes in hell. . . . Leade apes who list [lust].  See R. W.
Dent, Proverbial Language in English Drama Exclusive of Shakespeare,
(1984), Appendix A, p. 494; and R.W. Dent, Shakespeare's Proverbial
Language,  (1981) Appendix A, p. 163, noting that Shakespeare used the
proverb, as you have stated, in both Shrew and Ado.

I believe that Morris Palmer Tilley's dictionary of proverbs (1950) --
the groundbreaking work upon which Dent and others build -- also
includes this proverb.

Dear All:

At the NASA "Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive" site
(http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/archivepix.html) for 29 December 2003,
there is a picture of the The Witch Head Nebula; the accompanying
explanation reads:

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble -- maybe
Macbeth should have consulted the Witch Head Nebula. This suggestively
shaped reflection nebula is associated with the bright star Rigel in the
constellation Orion. More formally known as IC 2118, the Witch Head
Nebula glows primarily by light reflected from Rigel, located just
outside the top right corner of the above image. Fine dust in the nebula
reflects the light.  The blue color is caused not only by Rigel's blue
color but because the dust grains reflect blue light more efficiently
than red. The same physical process causes Earth's daytime sky to appear
blue, although the scatterers in Earth's atmosphere are molecules of
nitrogen and oxygen. The nebula lies about 1000 light-years away.

Specific words in the explanation are hyperlinked for additional
information; the word "Macbeth" in the first sentence is hyperlinked to
http://the-tech.mit.edu/Shakespeare/macbeth/.

Kozintsev Films Update

I've just been informed that the Kozintsev King Lear has been delayed
until February.  Still no date on the Hamlet - they have just begun the
restoration process, so it may be a few more months yet.

Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0085 Shakespop: Shakespeare Action Figure

D Bloom writes, "I have a number of favorite Shakespeare action figures:
Juliet, who stabs herself; Romeo, who drinks poison; Claudius, who pours
poison; Gertrude, who flops on her back; Cleopatra, who slaps an asp
onto her breasts (adults only); Falstaff, who drinks sack (he's not easy
to tell from Sir Toby Belch). The best, though, is Hamlet, who does
absolutely nothing."

What: no *Ghost*?
