Moving around on this site is tricky. WordPress sets and fixes links to open the target page in your source window. Close it and our site is history. Use your browser’s Back button to return to the source, click another link, or right-click on a link to open a new window (or tab). 

Contrarily, embedded in the content are internal links that open pages in new windows (or tabs), forming a chain of tangent topics. Close them to return. 

If this is dichotomy confusing or annoying, please comment and advise.

And Bookmark this page, just in case you erase your History.

WordPress Links

All the tabs displayed in the Menu bar beneath the banner at the top of every page and post (and briefly described in the Contents below) are fixed to open targets in the source window (or tab), as are all sidebar and footer links. The Blog tab opens a list of links to all posts by date published, beginning with the latest, with the first few lines of text; Categories in the drop-down menu (left sidebar) and above the heading of each post open similar lists of posts related to the one you see. Posts accessed from these lists are also WordPress links.


This site is a work in progress. Many of its posts and pages—especially those in Why Read Plays?—are rough and rambling, repetitious, searching for shape and cohesion. CR/I is desperately in need of an editor. (See Admin Apology in the right sidebar.)
