Subject: 	Reminder

On Tuesday (SHK 16.2009), I announced that I was undertaking an 

Tomorrow (Friday, December 9, 2005), I will end these threads: 
"Gertrude-Ophelia"; "Lions and Tigers and Wagers...oh my..."; 
"Shadowplay"; and "Living Characters." Today's digests of the four 
topics will be further identifies with Penultimate in the Subject line. 
Tomorrow's, with Closed.

Anyone who is compelled to comment should begin a new thread with a new 
Subject line that identifies as precisely as possible the aspect of the 
discussion that you would like to continue.

Yesterday, I announced another option that I endorse wholeheartedly.

On his own, Tom Krause set up a Yahoo group to discuss the theories he 
set forth in his paper "A Picture in Little Is Worth a Thousand Words: 
Debasement in Hamlet and Measure for Measure."

I encourage other SHAKSPER members to follow his lead and example. This 
might be done individually or in groups. For example, over the years, 
plays such as <I>Hamlet</I> or characters such as Shylock have initiated 
extensive and impassioned exchanges.  Those who have a fervent interest 
in a particular play, character, theory, or interpretative method after 
setting up specific-purpose groups would be able to debate unencumbered 
by my intrusions. When such a group exists, members could refer others 
to the group rather than repeating their arguments on SHAKSPER.

I will do all I can to assist in the establishing of such groups.
