Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1180 Why Shakespeare?

Dear Robert,

You could do much worse than read the first couple of chapters of  [NB.
Terence Hawkes, please look away now] Harold Bloom's _The Western
Canon_,  which deals exactly with your main query,  'why Shakespeare'
and not so-and-so.  Makes for great reading.

Simon Malloch.
