Greetings,

For an interesting activity which helps fuel the mystery around whether
or not William was one of the writers of the King James Bible --- check
out the 46th Psalm --- count 46 words from the beginning of the psalm
and circle the word ---- count 46 words from the end of the psalm and
circle the word --- see what you come up with . . .

Comment:        Re: SHK 9.0343 Shakespeare and the King James Bible

At the risk of sounding like a thoroughly shameless self-publicist . . .

I am currently editing a collection entitled _The Renaissance Text:
Theory, Editing, Textuality_ for Manchester University Press. The book
will appear in 1999 and will include a chapter on filiations between the
Shakespeare First Folio project and the King James Bible.

(With due apologies for such a mercenary use of the list . . .)
