Reading Group #2

Based on everyone's comments in my last post about our reading group, here's what I propose:

1) We read Boas's book on university drama; this will be an easy read, based on my scanning of it. But it will give us a nice overview of Oxbridge productions through 1603;

2) Based on Boas (since he gives a lot of summaries of plays along the way), we can then choose a university play to read afterwards.

Sound good? Those of you who want to just wait for the drama itself, of course, can feel free to do so. Those of you who want to pretend you read Boas, make comments in the discussion of Boas as though you had read it, but really just wait for the drama itself, can feel free to do that as well.

UPDATE: Just to pick a date, I'll propose that we plan to finish Boas by May 20. Read along, and when we post on the book, join in in the comments section.

    I'm new here, but I'd love to take part in the reading book -- looks interesting.
