Shakespearean Tragedies (all but two)

These are from 'Theater in Video' website. Found it via my local library links.

The version of Macbeth is the one I first saw in school--I still think it one of the best(next to Orson Welles). Most are BBC productions -- exception being Sir Lawrence O's Hamlet:

I've only coded for references I've found or come across. But, I'll keep expanding it. After downloads ~ run program -- it expands to mySpiritualGP folder. Drag the Rom2DecBG.exe item to your Quick Launch. Then it's a matter of high-lighting some text and clicking the app...

SCREENSHOT - Regular Expressions & Roman Numerals...

Most Gutenberg texts have 'Chapter I' or 'CHAPTER I' type divisions.
This one did not. To use my TTS applet I had to prepend the 'Chapter'
text in front of the Roman Numeral text divisions. I thought it might
be helpful to others so I'm posting 'how-to' here as well. I used the
SemWare Editor to accomplish this.

A crust of bread and a corner to sleep in

A crust of bread and a corner to sleep in,
A minute to smile and an hour to weep in,
A pint of joy to a peck of trouble,
And never a laugh but the moans come double;
        And that is life!

A crust and a corner that love makes precious,
With a smile to warm and the tears to refresh us;
And joy seems sweeter when cares come after,
And a moan is the finest of foils for laughter;
        And that is life!

Dunbar
