Right now I'm trying to put together a slide show to precede a public
'faculty lecture' entitled "Myth, Magic, and Metamorphosis" which I'm
delivering on March 22 at my community college. I'm focusing on Ovid
and Shakespeare (with a passing nod to Apuleius) and specifically, among
related ideas, on ass' ears. Henry Fuseli and, more weirdly, Richard
Dadd, painted Midsummer Night's Dream/Bottom-Titania works. The nearest
university arts library has non-circulating catalogues of some these
paintings but offers no color xerox or slide-making facilities. I've
been trying to get some images from the Internet, so far
unsuccessfully. If anyone has further suggestions, either of other art
images or where to find them, please let me know-off line is fine.

Subject: MLA Special Session
I am posting to discover the interest in a special panel at MLA on
Shakespeare's "Aspects of Influence." This title recalls the Harvard
Literary Series publication that featured several essays considering
Shakespeare's continued influence in the field of literature. Since it
is a special session I would like to narrow the topic specifically to
the Victorian period. Perhaps even more narrow. If you think that you
would have interest in participating in such a panel please send me a
personal email so that I can evaluate the general interest. If there is
enough interest, then I anticipate that I would require abstracts of
papers be submitted by 3/21 so that I could select the participants.
