My Shakespeare Library or Five [current] Favourite Shakespeare Books
These are the Shakespeare books I must have within a hand's reach, for
the moment, this list is of course subject to change without notice;
The Norton Shakespeare (complete works)
Stanley Wells: Shakespeare: For All Time
Park Honan: Shakespeare A Life
Charles Boyce: The Wordsworth Dictionary of Shakespeare
Erik Bystad: Shakespeares sonetter (translated to Norwegian, with the
sonnets printed in English on the facing pages)

As I said, this list changes. But I would be very interested in seeing
other SHAKSPER people's lists. What books are a must have, and which
should one stay clear of.

Subterranean Shakespeare - Shakespeare's Greatest

Subject:        Subterranean Shakespeare - Shakespeare's Greatest Hits

Subterranean Shakespeare Presents in benefit for the company
SHAKESPEARE'S GREATEST HITS.  Shakespeare's plays contain many songs.
Members of our company and friends decided to put together a band (The
Rude Mechanicals) to interpret his songs and words in his plays with a
modern sensibility of song.  To kick it off our theatre season we are
inviting other Bay Area artists to join in an evening of interpreting
Shakespeare in their own unique music styles.  Rock, Blues, Jazz,
Hip-Hop, Metal, Electronic,Traditional and more.  Here is a list of some
of the people who will be participating and some of the songs etc. that
they will be performing.  They are not all from Shakespeare's plays.
Some are songs that influenced his plays or lines in the plays or songs
that were influenced by his plays.  The idea is to have fun with
Shakespeare and music is always interesting.  A cd of this project will
follow in the next year and if the concert is successful we will
probably do it again on a yearly basis.  There is so much material and
many more local artists who we could not fit into this show.

I saw the programme.  They x-rayed the painting and found an Italian
madonna and child underneath.  This suggested that it could be from the
right period.  They then gave the portrait to an expert on pigments and
she found chrome-yellow in the picture, a pigment that wasn't available
in the 17th century.  I think she concluded it was an early 19th century
forgery.

Macbeth Questions

Comment:        Re: SHK 16.0728 Macbeth Questions

"Swelling" in MACBETH also carries the key sense of pregnancy and
fertile/mortal growth. Time itself is seeded by the power-lusts of the
characters--events are "new hatched to th'woeful time." Duncan has
planted a poisonous Macbeth and will reap the harvest. He has given
birth to the venomous serpent who will grow to sting him.

I'm very glad to hear Peter is still with us!  I wonder why Claude
Caspar told us last June on SHAKSPER that Peter had died ...

"Peter Milward's recent demise holds promise that he will keep you
informed of his research from Purgatory, where he can interview
Shakespeare personally, and even the Ghost..."
