I might also mention Annabel Patterson's _Shakespeare and the Popular
Voice_ (1989). Her chapter entitled "Back by Popular Demand: The Two
Versions of _Henry V_" openly discusses the intentionality debate and
offers up a validation for arguing the author's role in composition.

She combines this with textual studies and audience-centered criticism
as well.

Well, if it leads us to this sort of apoplectic hate, probably not.
