Has anyone mentioned Frank Kermode's _Shakespeare's Language_ (NY: 
Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2000)?

I also suggested to Professor Evans off list: Meredith Anne Skura's 
_Shakespeare the Actor and the Purposes of Playing_ (Chicago: U of 
Chicago P, 1993), which is one of my favorite books on Shakespeare, and 
(somewhat off the beaten path, but a great book about speaking the 
texts) Cicely Berry's (the great RSC Voice Director), _The Actor and the 
Text_. (NY: Applause Books, 1987).

I'd also recommend John Porter Houston's _Shakespearean Sentences: A 
Study in Style and Syntax_ (Baton Rouge: Louisiana State UP, 1988).
