Subject:        Gesta Grayorum?

I'm hard at work on my Study Guide for a production of Comedy of Errors,
with the Arden and my Salgado "Eyewitnesses of Shakespeare" to hand, and
so have a question or two.

Maybe it's just me, but I find the entry in Henry Helmes' book about
_Comedy of Errors_ to be pretty fantastical stuff.  I was wondering if
there was any consensus on how credible the _Gesta Grayorum_ is?  If any
critical work has been done on this text, a reference or two would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andy White
