More to the original requester's point,

I found one copy for sale at Book in Hand, 103 Condon Road, Stillwater,
NY USA 12170-1915  $50

Found via www.bookfinder.com

Also one listed from Amazon.com used for $126

I recommend Bookfinder for all sorts of hard-to-find titles.

This is a very late response, but Terrence Hawkes has characteristically
distilled some of the common objections to stylometrics into a handy
snack-sized post.  Uncharacteristically, it's also superficial and
unthought through.

 >The defining character of stylometrics lies in its leaden-footed
 >plodding after that modern chimera, authenticity.

Completely wrong: working on stylometrics has taught me exactly why
'authenticity' is a problematic concept.

 >In the manufacture of
 >soul-gelding, buttock-clenching tedium, this is a pursuit that has few
 >equals.

'gelding' and 'buttock-clenching' in close proximity.  Dr Freud - anything?

 >No wonder. To shackle texts grimly to specific authors, is to
 >deny that they have overriding and unassignable imperatives and styles
 >of their own.

No 'taint, sir.  I didn't have you down as such a neo-romanticist.  Why
do you wish to grimly shackle texts to specific overriding and
unassignable imperatives and styles?

Carnival and The Rover Query

Subject:        Carnival and The Rover Query

Hello all-

I know that this is slightly off-topic for this list, but I am hoping
that someone out there can help me out.  Or rather, help out a colleague
of mine.  I'm submitting this request on behalf of Susan Johnson-Hood, a
costume designer/fellow student at UMass Amherst, who is currently
writing a paper on Aphra Behn's THE ROVER.  She is looking for any
sources that might discuss carnival (in Europe in general, in Spain
specifically) during the 1640's.  Books, articles, artist's renderings
of what carnival costumes of the period might have looked like, you name
it...she would welcome any resources that could help her.  If you have
any info, please reply to her off-list at:

Searching for Macbeth

Subject:        Searching for Macbeth

Hello everyone.  I was hoping that someone on this list might be able to
help me find copies of Michel Garneau's Quebecois "Macbeth" and RLC
Lorimer's Lowland Scots "Macbeth" that I might purchase.  I have already
searched Alibris, Bibliofind, Abebooks, and a few other search engines
to no avail.  If anyone has copies of these texts that they would be
willing to sell or knows where I could acquire them, please contact me
off-list.

Thanks very much,
Lauryn Sasso

Lady Macbeth or Rosalind?

Subject:        Lady Macbeth or Rosalind?

SHAKSPEReans,

Nothing can be more fun than to compare two women, especially
Shakespearean ladies, like Lady Macbeth and Lady Rosalind.

According to *The New York Times*, British actress Helen Mirren wants to
portray Martha Stewart, saying, "Absolutely.  She must have amazing
energy.  I don't understand the villification of Martha Stewart.  She
doesn't deserve Lady Macbeth.  In a way, she's more like Rosalind from
*As You Like It*.  She's mouthy, pushy and opinionated-kind of wonderful
and kind of difficult." Actress Mirren has played Shakespeare's Lady
Macbeth.  So, how would you compare Lady Macbeth and Rosalind?
