Subject: 	Romance Question

Dear Shakespeareans,

I am researching ties between Shakespeare's history plays and romance, 
and I was wondering if any of you know of the best scholarship to turn 
to for the area of romance. I tend to have more experience on the 
historical side and less on the romance side. The romances I'm using for 
primary sources are Lodge's Rosalind and Greene's Pandosto. I have gone 
to Northrope Frye, Fredrick Jameson, and have read parts of David 
Quint's Epic and Empire, as well as dozens of articles, but I'm 
wondering if any of you out there know of ideal sources that I'm missing 
that might be more current. I'm not working on Shakespeare's romances, 
themselves, although I can find tons of information on them. I'm finding 
it more difficult to pin down romance generically, which seems to be 
everyone's problem in general.

I'm trying to write my dissertation 2200 miles away from my school (due 
to my husband's good fortune of landing a job in California), so it's 
tough to get a lot of response from my faculty mentors. Even with the 
advancements in communications that we have, I fear 
out-of-sight-out-of-mind attitudes still apply. Any help you can offer 
would be much appreciated. Off list responses are welcome!

Thank you,
Marcia Eppich-Harris
