Subject: Webpage Additions - Elizabethan Drama. Shakespearean Theses.
I would like to draw SHAKSPEReans attention to one new and one recently
expanded source published on the websites to which I contribute (added
in the Autumn and Winter of last year, but I have not previously
mentioned them on SHAKSPER).

(that cover Shakespearean topics or subjects otherwise related to these
sites) would add my sites and individual pages wherever appropriate.
Many thanks for reading this. I hope that the sites and pages prove
useful to some of you.
