Subject: Growing Up and Growing Old in Shakespeare
For the last half dozen years I have been interesting myself in the
subject of aging as it is treated in literature.  As a Shakespearean,
I have, naturally, spent a fair amount of time in examining his texts
as grist for my gerontological mill.  About two or three years ago,
someone offered a seminar at the Folger on "Growing Up and Growing Old
in Shakespeare."  I no longer have the program so I don't know who it
was that organized that session.  I have two requests.  Does anyone
know who gave that seminar?  And secondly, since I am planning to
give a seminar in a similar vein in the spring, does anyone know any
good books or articles on the subject of growing up in Shakespeare?
Although I have a fairly large bibliography on growing old in
Shakespeare, any suggested titles (particularly of very recent vintage)
on that topic would also be quite welcome.
