Re: Bohemia's Sea Coast (etc.)

Shakespeare didn't need to have sailed (or not sailed) anywhere to get
his idea that Bohemia had a coastline - he got it from his source text -
Greene's 'Pandosto'.

', that without any suspition they got to the sea shoare, where, with
many a bitter curse taking their leaue of Bohemia, they went aboord,
weighing their Ancres: & hoisting saile, thy passed as fast as winde and
sea would permit towards Sycilia; '

It is fair to assume (as did David Lindley) that an intelligent writer
and listener (not to mention heavy plagiarist) such as Shakespeare need
go no further than book or tavern to glean his 'knowledge' of the world.

Best,
Marcus

>Though see Golding's translation of Ovid

In my opinion, Golding is much neglected in Shakespeare studies. In
addition to the Ovid, Golding translated Calvin's Sermons on several
books of the Bible and Junius Solinus Polyhistor's Pleasante Works. One
of A. Goldings descendants, Louis Thorne Golding, wrote a biography of
his Puritan ancestor c. 1920 (I think).

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell
