Apparently, it was in violation because it used Hinman's line numbering system.

It seems like a stretch to me, but Norton could afford a bigger legal battle
than Applause, so it hardly matters.

Cheers,
Sean.

Hi.

I found David's description of *All's Well* really interesting, as his posts
tend to be.  There is, however, a different reading available, in which Bertram
is rebelling against getting virtually raped by someone who's able to demand
his hand without anything like his permission. Rejecting the countess, a
co-conspirator in this assault, as well as the whole of "female" civility for a
strictly male world is only a logical response.

Of course, what happens to Bertram is only a gender-reversal of what happens to
any number of female characters.  Kate in *Taming* comes to mind.  This can
allow us to sympathy with him, a victim like those we tend to lionize.

Cheers,
Sean.
