SHAKESPEARE'S WOMEN .-This was the title of a lecture given in connection with the Chester University Extension Association, at the Grosvenor Museum, on Thursday, before a large audience, by Miss Maude Royden, daughter of the High Sheriff of Cheshire. This was the first of a course of six lectures which will deal with the various characters of the women of Shakespeare's plays. The lecture dealt with the characters of Margaret of Anjon and Juliet, shewing with great effectiveness the simplicity of motive in the case of Juliet. Her simple ana single impulse was pas- sion, and she was very child-like, even childish. The texts were all full of rhymes, and we found the roeognised forms of Elizabethan poetry. It was one of Shakespeare's first tragedies, but in reality it was more of a pijem than, a play. Other char- acters were illustrated by the lecturer, who at the close received the thanks of the assembly for her lecture. A class will be held' for the elucidation of points which have not been fully dealt with during the lecture.
