Subject: Letter writing

By a strange coincidence, the art of letter writing has been the subject of
a thread on the Mediber list, where you can find lots of bibliography on the
artes dictaminis in medieval and renaissance Spain. There, I found the
following item, which may be of interest:
Dear sister : medieval women and the epistolary genre /
edited by Karen Cherewatuk and Ulrike Wiethaus. Philadelphia,
Univ. of Penn. Press, c1993. 215 p. LC93-20024. Incl. bibl.
refs. and index.

Transparent Language itself has assembled a small, sprial-bound book of
perhaps a dozen reviews from professional journals & computer magazines.
There was one in _Computers and the Humanities_ by David Graham, June 1992
(26:3), pp. 223-225. I have also seen some in _Electronic Learning_,
_Boston Computer Currents_, _PC Magazine_, _MacWorld_, _CALICO Journal_
and elsewhere. You can reach TL at 800-752-1767.
