Hey, don't knock the monkeys, they've since made a lot of progress:  "24
letters from 'The Second Part of King Henry IV' after 2,737,850 million
billion billion billion monkey-years. Sent in by Darren Eggett from
Bountiful, Utah on 3 Jan 2005.  'RUMOUR. Open your ears; 9r"5j5&?OWTY
Z0d "B-nEoF.vjSqj[...' matched 'RUMOUR. Open your ears; for which of you
will stop The vent of hearing when loud Rumour speaks?...'"
Furthermore, they've hit on 24 letters from several other plays, as you
can see at the simulator:

I haven't seen the book yet, or any reviews, but a colleague of mine
here at CMU, a Tudor historian, knows (and highly regards) Asquith and
her work and has recommended the book to me.

Passing of Martin Lings

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 16.0926  Wednesday, 18 May 2005

Subject:        Passing of Martin Lings

It is with sadness that I report the passing of Martin Lings early in
the morning of May 12, 2005, at his home in England.  I feel very
fortunate to have known him and to have been able to film an interview
with him related to his life of Shakespeare scholarship, writing,
teaching and lecturing. Dr. Lings book, THE SACRED ART OF SHAKESPEARE,
with a forward by HRH the Prince of Wales, highlights the deeper
spiritual aspects to be found in Shakespeare's later works.

His passing is a deep personal loss to for me, and his scholarship will
be missed.

With best wishes,
Ira Zinman
