Thomas Dekker gives characters Dutch accents in both Shoemaker's Holiday
and The Roaring Girl. This would be in keeping with Dekker's own Dutch
heritage. I think Middleton uses accents as well, though titles are not
coming to me just now.

Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0218 Henry V Question

To my mind, the ridicule to which both characters are exposed is
lighter on Catherine, comic, laughable, funny. Then, when I think of
Joan, Shakespeare's sarcasm and mockery is aimed at offence-giving and
harder. I only have to turn myself into an Elizabethan Puritan to feel
two very different reactions regarding these two characters, and these
feeling leave no margin for doubt!!!!

The sweetness of the accent Shakespeare gives to Katherine, Henry V's
Queen, has to do with the love and admiration the character of Henry
arouses. On the other hand, the levity and coarseness given to Joan has
to do with the upbuild of a sense of patriotism that his time demanded
from him then, under Elizabeth I. Accents in this case, I dare venture a
hypothesis, has to do with purpose and attitude.

You can't get better than Baldwin on LLL, especially on Holofernes.

Andrew Gurr's The Shakespearian Playing Companies (Oxford, 1996) is
clearly more up to date than E. K. Chambers's The Elizabethan Stage of 1923.
