Jane Shore: A Tragedy, by Nicholas Rowe (1674 - 1718)
Covering some of the plot of Shakespeare's Richard III, Jane Shore focuses on the mistress of the late Edward IV. Rowe portrays her as a kind woman who encourages her lover Hastings to oppose Richard's usurpation of power. In revenge Richard forces her to do penance and to become an outcast.

I think I've got things set up correctly; I'm still pretty new at this, so bear with me. :) I seem to have overshot on the sections. I need only 43. How do I delete the extras?

Thanks,
Wendy

The MC needs to delete them. I'll take care of that now, and you can add sections when you are in the MW if you end up needing more.

May I read The Duke of Gloucester? (Or however it is spelled - er, mis-spelt - here.)

Thanks, Todd

Actually the mis-spelling is the way the locals would pronounce it. The middle syllable is not pronounced :hmm:

I was brought up next to Gloucester (in Massachusetts, US). I know which syllables to ignore.

Thanks, Todd
