Subject: Shakespeare Numbers
It seems to me that Peter Holland is right-there's a lot more than a few
hundred active researchers working on Shakespeare. For example, the
latest issue of "The World Shakespeare Bibliography," for 1997, contains
4780 items and an Index of Names (not all authors) that goes on for 57
pages, with over 200 names per page!
