The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 16.2022 Thursday, 8 December 2005
From: Hardy M. Cook <
Date: Thursday, December 08, 2005
On Tuesday (SHK 16.2009), I announced that I was undertaking an
Tomorrow (Friday, December 9, 2005), I will end these threads:
"Gertrude-Ophelia"; "Lions and Tigers and Wagers...oh my...";
"Shadowplay"; and "Living Characters." Today's digests of the four
topics will be further identifies with Penultimate in the Subject line.
Tomorrow's, with Closed.
Anyone who is compelled to comment should begin a new thread with a new
Subject line that identifies as precisely as possible the aspect of the
discussion that you would like to continue.
Yesterday, I announced another option that I endorse wholeheartedly.
On his own, Tom Krause set up a Yahoo group to discuss the theories he
set forth in his paper "A Picture in Little Is Worth a Thousand Words:
Debasement in Hamlet and Measure for Measure."
I encourage other SHAKSPER members to follow his lead and example. This
might be done individually or in groups. For example, over the years,
plays such as <I>Hamlet</I> or characters such as Shylock have initiated
extensive and impassioned exchanges. Those who have a fervent interest
in a particular play, character, theory, or interpretative method after
setting up specific-purpose groups would be able to debate unencumbered
by my intrusions. When such a group exists, members could refer others
to the group rather than repeating their arguments on SHAKSPER.
I will do all I can to assist in the establishing of such groups.
