I think that no one could believe that I have ever been a supporter of the New
Oxford Shakespeare.  It simply gets too many things wrong.  I am also, by and
large, a supporter of many of the things William Godshalk stands for and
expresses.
 
But, that good old Shakespearean "but", Taylor and Jowett's +Shakespeare
Reshaped+ is a first-rate piece of scholarship and I could no more dimiss it
out of hand than I could W.G.'s article in +SQ+ in 1972.  We need, on this list
and in our profession, much more light and much less heat.  Or so I believe.
