Subject: Date of Composition of _Othello_
I wonder if anyone on the list has any strong opinions about the likely
date of composition of _Othello_. E.A.J. Honigmann, in the latest Arden
text, argues for a date from mid-1601 to mid-1602; Norman Sanders' New
Cambridge edition of 1984 argues for a date ca. 1602-04. I will be
checking other editions to see the arguments they offer, but if anyone
on the list may know of something very recent, I would be most grateful.
Thanks -- Bob Evans
