Subject:        World Shakespeare Bibliography

On 1 October, I'll close the files for the 1997 World Shakespeare
Bibliography. Although contributors to the Bibliography regularly scan
hundreds of journals and newspapers, we invariably overlook articles and
reviews. Consequently, if you have published something-popular or
scholarly-on Shakespeare during 1997 and if you think that we might
inadvertently overlook it, please email me a citation. For example, if
you have published in a journal that usually doesn't publish Shakespeare
criticism, in a journal of limited circulation, or in a journal held in
very few U.S. libraries, we could easily overlook your article or
review; or, if you have a substantial discussion of Shakespeare in a
book with a title that might not catch our eye, we could easily overlook
your book.

Since we also include productions in the Bibliography, I encourage
theater people to send along programs and reviews of their
productions-especially those not produced by one of the annual
Shakespeare festivals.

Cambridge UP has just published the 1983-95 disk of the World
Shakespeare Bibliography on CD-ROM, and work on the 1980-96 disk (ca.
50,000 entries) proceeds apace. So that we don't inadvertently overlook
publications, I am asking all Shakespeareans (who have not yet done so)
to send me a complete list of their Shakespeare-related publications.
(Posted on the WSB web-site (http://www-english.tamu.edu/wsb) is a
substantial list of studies that we know about but have not been able to
locate. If you can supply a copy of any of these, please email me
[This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.].)

I always encourage Shakespeareans to send along offprints,
photocopies-or at least notices-of their new publications (and programs
of productions). Having copies in-hand reduces the chance that we will
inadvertently exclude something because we overlooked it or because an
issue of a journal was in binding or lost in the mails. I'll be
delighted to supply some preprinted mailing labels to anyone who emails

Many thanks in advance for your help in our effort to provide
Shakespeareans with a timely, thorough guide to studies and productions
