Brief History latest

I know people find it hard to work out what's newly arrived in the "Brief History". The latest articles (some of them half-built) are:

Wolfram von Eschenbach - Parzival (1198)
Shakesp. - III Henry 6 (1590)
Molière (1670)
Wordsworth - "Strange Fits of Passion" (1799)
Scott - Marmion (1808) - and the young Whitman...
Scott - The Abbot (1820)
Luke Rhinehart - The Dice Man (1972)
Finnish Poets - Mirkka Rekola and Kai Nieminen (2001)
Hairy tare (Vicia hirsuta) (June 2005)

Hi Robin -

I know, it’s not particularly transparent.

Go to

On the right-hand side, under the heading “Brief History of Western Culture”, select the second section (“To 1750”).

Once it’s opened, near the top of the page click on “William Shakespeare (1564-1616)”

And you’re there.

(alternatively, you can go straight to -

but that’s cheating...

(I’m interested in your views on the editing of 16th century plays. I wrote about this in the essay on Marlowe, too.)
