Arnie Perlstein asks:

 >Can anyone tell me how to obtain a copy of the 1923 article by Edith
 >Rickert re Midsummer Night's Dream, in which she argues, among other
 >things, that Bottom is a parody of James VI of Scotland...

Arnie's looking for "Political Propaganda and Satire in A Midsummer 
Night's Dream" by Martha Edith Rickert, originally published in MODERN 
PHILOLOGY,V.21, PP.53-87 and 133-54 (1923-1924). David Bevington 
rejected her allegory, but Maurice Hunt rejected his rejection in: "A 
Speculative Political Allegory in A Midsummer Night's Dream" -- 
COMPARATIVE DRAMA,V.34, PP.423-53 (Winter 2000-01).

Happy hunting!

and Satire in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. (To be Continued)." Edith 
Rickert. Modern Philology, Vol. 21, No. 1. (Aug., 1923), pp. 53-87.
