Subject: Sonnet 116
How do fellow SHAKSPERians interpret the grammatical structure of the
final line of Sonnet 116? KDJ is silent on the ambiguity, and I don't
think we can use the later non-authorial manuscript reproduced in Appx A
of Arden III as evidence of one reading over another. Kerrigan's
Penguin introduction suggests the 'universal' reading, while his
footnote admits the possibility of a particular subject. I don't have
Booth to hand but no doubt someone will e-ticipate me.
