ESSAY ...................... by Robin O. Warren Shakespeare's plays were so well known in the nineteenth century that U.S. soldiers were able to recognize characters by their costumes--even when the outfits were being worn by the Seminoles they were fighting. Edmund Kean, shown here dressed as Othello, was one of the actors responsible for popularizing Shakespeare on the American stage. From Gabriel Harrison's Edwin Forrest: The Actor and the Man, published by Brooklyn Eagle Book Printing in Brooklyn, New York, 1889. n 1835 Halley's Comet entered into view from earth, as it does every seventy-six years or so, or about once in the lifetime of most men and women. For Europeans, the comet's appearance confirmed the rational, mechanistic order of the universe. Edmund Halley had first charted its broad orbit around the sun in 1682. After searching archives and consulting his friend Isaac Newton's theories, Halley concluded that the comet had visited the earth's skies regularly as far back as 87 BC and would next appear in 1758 or 1759.
