Subject: RE: SHAKSPER: Queen Undaunted
Jeanette Webber's claim that Margaret of Anjou is "the only person to appear in four of [Shakespeare's] plays"--meaning the three Henry VI plays and Richard III--neglects the presence of her husband, who appears in the three plays that bear his name, and returns, first as a corpse and then as a ghost in Richard III. Since he has a few lines in his latter manifestation, he must be allowed the same status as character that we accord King Hamlet.
