It is instructive to find even so unremitting an opponent of totalization and
intentionality as Terence Hawkes inferring motive from text, when he advises a
student to read <Much Ado> with Innogen, rather than without, "as most of the
play's editors WANT you to do" (my caps).

Terrence Hawkes--I have heard that Innogen is Leanato's wife in -MAAD-.
However she is edited out of the version I have been reading. In fact I have
heard over the net that she has no lines, and does nothing. Since Innogen does
not do anything or speak, is she what you see as the ultimate "Woman as
outsider in Shakespeare?"
 
Very funny! Is this some kind of Bard barb?
