Steve,

I'm wondering why you dis Q2?

>Q2... is pretty sloppy.

True, it appears to have been influenced by Q1 in the first five scenes,
but much less after that, according to Greg.  Many make the case that it
was open when compiling F, though many others disagree.  If you have not
given up on source texts, Dover Wilson believed it was derived from
Shakespeare's own manuscript.  Others have agreed.  No matter what road
you take to get there, most scholars agree that Q2 is quite a good text.

Please give your reason for dismissing this line based on Q2's alleged
sloppiness.

Sir Toby

I'm sure this question has been answered often and maybe the question
itself is flawed, BUT:

Am I mistaken in my reading of Twelfth Night that Sir Toby and Maria are
from different socio-economic levels? If they are, how do they wind up
together at the end of the play without much (if any) viable
explanation?

Just one more voice to laud this conference. Takashi did an incredible
job of pulling together some of the world's best scholars for some of
the most engaging presentations I've had the pleasure to see. Thanks,
Takashi--for the conference, and for your consistently well-reasoned and
civil postings.
