Subject:     Re: SHAKSPER: MND Source? 

 

Kimura-sensei’s conjecture that The Birds is a source for MND is fascinating, but I wonder why she doesn’t say the same about the closing Cuckoo song in LLL. Unfortunately, to come to an informed judgment about this, we need to have the original Greek text of The Birds, and I have mislaid mine, as well as Greek translations of MND and LLL. Perhaps Kimura-sensei could supply them and point out the similarities.
