Subject:        Edmund Ironside
 
Regarding Robert Hatch's query on the *Edmund Ironside* controversy:
 
Eric Sams and M.W.A. Smith have been revisiting this subject in *Notes and
Queries* lately; Mr. Hatch's query makes me think he may not have seen this
exchange.  Smith wrote an article two years ago (N&Q 238 (1993), p.202-5)
providing new stylometric evidence against the attribution of the play to
Shakespeare.  Sams responded (N&Q 239 (1994), p. 469-72) with an attack on
Smith and stylometry, written in his typical inflammatory and exaggerated
style, to which Smith has replied in the most recent issue of *N&Q* (September
1995) with a calm but forceful dissection of the misrepresentations and
distortions in Sams' article.
 
Sorry if this is too late for the presentation on Friday, but hopefully it will
be useful anyway.

Don: I'm intrigued by your suggestion that EI might be by Greene--a suggestion
I have never seen before: I'd love a copy of whatever you send to Robert Hatch.
 
My own study of the work suggested it was within limits of Shakespeare's
vocabulary as it might have been constituted in 1589--I'll have to check my
paper on this tomorrow--using Brainerd's dating method for Shakespeare's plays.
But that was ten years ago . . . . Cheers.
