I overlooked the dramatic sections somehow. I'll take Lady Montague's one-liner.
thank you, Devorah :) yes the female roles are a bit sparse this time, but I am always casting gender neutral.

People can not change the time available to them, though they can certainly re prioritize their chores and hopefully find time for fun!!

Can I add sections 13, 21, 29, 42, 70, 79, 80, 82, 87, 88, 112 if they are not yet taken.

I could also do the few lines of Hire in the Schiller.

How could I resist the role of Tybalt?

A tug named Tyball (cousin to the skirt)
Sprags 'em an' makes a start to sling off dirt.
Nex' minnit there's a reel ole ding-dong go -—
'Arf round or so.
Mick Curio, 'e gets it in the neck,
"Ar rats!" 'e sez, an' passes in 'is check.

Quite natchril, Romeo gits wet as 'ell.
"It's me or you!" 'e 'owls, an' wiv a yell,
Plunks Tyball through the gizzard wiv 'is sword,
'Ow I ongcored!
"Put in the boot!" I sez. "Put in the boot!"
"'Ush!" sez Doreen ... "Shame!" sez some silly coot.”
"Sorry, my tongue got in the way of my eye-tooth, and I couldn't see what I was saying..."

ATTENTION PLEASE !!!

I had to remove the old section 42. The coronation of Charlemagne, painting p. 162, because I noticed that there was the page missing with the description of the painting. Resourceful as I am, I emailed the university department that scanned the book for archive and asked them to please add the missing page.

This morning I received an answer back from them, they did some background research into other scans of this book online (Hathi etc) and this page was missing everywhere. Now I am sure that there should have been a painting description, because otherwise that would have been the only painting without any accompanying text in the series, but well, it can't be helped. If the page is not there, then we cannot read it. We're still lucky all the pages in the essays are available. :)

Now please be careful, all those sections after Number 41 have different numbers !!! Please check the MW so you insert the correct file-number in your recordings. Here's a list of those that have changed so far.

It also means, Alan gets one section less, as he had claimed that painting.
