Reply to William Proctor Williams:
My basic point was that someone beginning a study of MM might not want to begin
with the arguments in SHAKESPEARE RESHAPED - which I was reading a week or two
ago. Obviously Jowett, Taylor, and Wells have done much to heat up the debate
over Shakespeare's text. But as my colleague Y. S. Bains keeps telling me, the
Oxford editors simply ignore what they do not wish to confront. Personally, I
find Taylor's work very helpful - to argue against.
By the way, I realize that Wells does not have his name on SHAKESPEARE
RESHAPED. I wish I could be more specific about the book, but I seem to have
mislaid my copy. The older I get the more this mislaying business seems to
happen. When I can't find my computer, I'll really be in trouble.
Yours, Bill Godshalk
