Subject:        Hamletworks

Has the debut of Hamletworks been neglected on this list?  Perhaps
Hamletfolks are familiar with it but I just stumbled on this offshoot of
the New Variorum Hamlet.  It's described by its editors (Bernice W.
Kliman, Eric Rasmussen, Frank Nicholas Clary, Hardin Aasand) as a work
in progress, but it looks to me like a very full and useful collection
of texts and tools.  The URL hamletworks.org goes--probably
temporarily--to  http://www.leoyan.com/global-language.com/ENFOLDED/

The home page suggests these uses:
--Compare early Hamlet editions from the First Quarto (Q1, 1603), Second
Quarto (Q2, 1605), First Players' Quarto (Q6, 1676) and First Folio (F1,
1623).
--Build a concordance
--Survey textual notes in editions from Q2 to the present
--Compare commentary notes from the eighteenth to the twentieth century
by clicking on a line number
--See Hamlet facsimiles
--Explore global essays on Hamlet around the world

Cheers,
Al Magary
