Subject:        Thighs and Sighs

Queries for the List's commonwealth of knowledge.

Is there any recorded academic suggestion or dismissal  for a connection
between the thigh mutilation in J C (TLN 942-3) or/and 1H4 (TLN 3092)
with that recorded by William of Malmesbury's account of the post-mortem
wound to King Harold at Hastings. There is clearly a dishonour
association between the Hotspur and Harold cases.

What is the ratio (in recent productions - say last 5 years)  of use to
non-use of Portia's singing train to give Bassanio the "lead" clue - if
it is such - in M of V (TLN 1409-13). It has been cut in the last 7
productions I have seen - the latest being 3 hours ago.

Thanks in advance for any information/citations.
