Subject:        THEOBALD AND ROWE
 
Dear Professor Seary,
 
Thanks for your references.  I wonder if Theobald did anything more than list
the Rowe. Is there any proof that he held the books in his hands, examined
them, read them thoroughly?  I know how difficult it was in the early 18th
century to get books and while Theobald may have known of Rowe and even used
Rowe indirectly through Pope, I wonder if he ever really looked at the text
carefully.  Any ideas?  I will certainly look at your book again, which I read
about a year ago with great pleasure.  I agree with you that Theobald did some
magnificent work that has been dismissed and belittled.  The whole issue on
competition interests me very much.
 
All the best,
 
Bernice W. Kliman

*As You Like It* 3.3 is rich with goodies.  My personal favorite (for my
wedding actually) is Touchstone's "Come, sweet Audrey: We must be
married, or we must live in bawdry." Cheers.
