Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1337 Theobald

When I studied with Peter Seary in Toronto (author of __Lewis Theobald
and the Editing of Shakespeare__ [Oxford, 1990]), he always pronounced
the name "Tibbald" a la Pope, but I don't know what other reasons he may
have had for the pronunciation.

The Shakespearean editor Theobald
Published verses both vulgar and reobald
On his enemy Pope,
Who remarked, "He must hope
We will think they were lisped and not dreobald."

Pronounced Tibbald to this day by the habitues of The Mitre pub
(remaining part of the Bishop of Ely's palace - see Richard III  3.4.)
just off Theobalds road and High Holborn, London.

Absolutely miniscule snug, terrible (but inexpensive) ale, nice
sandwiches, lovely coal fire in the winter.  Some interesting artifacts
of the palace.

Best wishes,
Graham Hall

Regarding pronunciation of Theobald's name, Peter Seary (in _Lewis
Theobald and the Editing of Shakespeare_, p.87) argues that "Theobald's
name was properly pronounced trisyllabically (as the name is still
pronounced in Sittingbourne)," citing a note by J.R. Sutherland for the
_Dunciad_, i. 106.
