I am inadequately informed  to evaluate Cliff's conclusions, but I think
that a collaborative, cooperative, communal attempt to resolve the
uncertainty cited by Bullough represents an opportunity for the list and
Richard Kennedy is to be commended for bringing it forward.  An enduring
footnote to Shakespeare is worth a lot of conversation.  (Both more
valuable and warranted)

All the best,
R. A. Cantrell

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1920 Re: Caesar's Revenge

I gather that Richard Kennedy looked for similar verbal parallels in all
other playwrights whose works are extant from c. 1607, and found none?
Eric Sams can show more parallels than this for *Ironsides* and all of
*Edward III*, but not convincingly.  Oxfordians do the same with their
candidate, but lots of writers use his phrases.  They are common,
sometimes clich
