Subject: Character/Scene/Line Breakdown Charts
I'm trying to find a book a classmate of mine used in a grad school exercise a
while back*, but he can't remember the title or author. It consisted of a list
of Shakespeare plays with each character's appearances listed by scene, along
with a line count for each character in each scene and a total number of lines
for the play. I *could* obviously compile the information myself, of course, but
I'd much rather avoid duplicating effort if someone's already gone to the trouble.
Does anyone have an idea of the book I'm talking about, or at least something
along similar lines? Thanks in advance.
(*We had to cast a Shakespeare play from the known members of the Lord
Chamberlain's Men/King's Men at the time the play was written--or as near a
guess at the time as possible, anyway. It was both fascinating and entertaining.)
