Subject:        New Verses by Shakespeare

Hi, guys.

A few years ago I bought a book edited by Peter Levi, and entitled New
Verses by Shakespeare heavily discounted at a university bookstore.
Does anyone else know of it?  Has any more work been done on the
authenticity of the poems raised in it?  To summarize, it was supposedly
written for a formalized, private present-giving amongst the family of
the Countess of Derby on the occasion of the engagement of her eldest

Has anyone tried running this through the SHAXICON database?  Has anyone
contested, or even bothered to respond to, Levi's attribution?

Sean Lawrence.
