I agree with Paul Doniger.  On three of the poetry lists to which I
subscribe, I'd need both hands to count the number of long-standing
friendships which have shattered in these last days.

All else aside, in purely practical terms, Hardy is entirely in the
right.

I understand Hardy's ruling and will abide by it but could we compromise
on this?

Could we merely point out parallels to Shakespeare without political
anger.

The similarities to Henry IV are downright irresistible.

e.g. We have a former drunken playboy turned warrior-prince.

Did George Sr ever tell Junior about 'the ill-devised and crooked ways I
met this crown'?

Did the English ever latch onto that terrorist Owen Glendower?
