Comment:        RE: SHK 11.0748 Re: Shakespeare and Italy

Sean Lawrence writes, on my forwarded post about Shakespeare being
Italian:

I thought that the authorship controversy was strictly forbidden on this
list?

And Hardy responds:

[Editor's Note: Apologies for the authorship slip, but this one sounded
so convincing. --Hardy]

The point is, as Hardy obviously intuited, this was anything but the
resurrection of an "authorship question"-I did not endorse it-merely
sent it on for the general amusement. And I think most of you
(especially my cheeky buddy Ed Taft) took it in exactly the spirit in
which it was intended.

(What fools these mortals be!)

Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0744 Shakespeare and Italy

Oh what?  He developed a thirty thousand word English vocabulary
starting at the age of 24?  He must have spoke some serious Italian.
How come barely a word of it appears in the plays given all those
Italian settings?

Fifteen out of thirty-seven?  That's not even half.  Anyway, nobody in
London needed an excuse to set plays in Italy.  He didn't invent the
practice, nor is he particularly exceptional in it.
