Subject:        Shakespeare Newsletter 54:2/3

The new double issue of *The Shakespeare Newsletter* (Summer/Fall 2004,
volume 54:2/3) has news, articles, reviews, poetry, and features that
will be of interest to members of SHAKSPER.

"Carrying Cordelia" by John Mosedale is an entertaining meditation on
the stage direction "Enter LEAR with Cordelia in his arms," and the ways
this entrance has been handled in several productions.

In "Shakespeare's 'Careful Art': Casca and Enobarbus," John Velz
examines the playwright's dramaturgy of complex characters by looking at
the apparent paradoxes of these Roman characters.

David McInnis's "On Cleopatra's 'Invisible Perfume' makes the convincing
case that Enobarbus expression should not be emended, for there were
visible perfumes known in early modern England.

The issue includes front cover and other art by Ben Shahn, with a note
on his Shakespeare work, and a Hamlet themed comic strip by the great
George Herrimann.
