From the January 2, Boston Globe:  Quoting the third paragraph.

There are problems with these theories, however. For example, elaborate
scenarios have to be concocted for the lives of Marlowe, Rutland,
Oxford, and Elizabeth I because they all died many years before the
final play was written. (''Henry VIII'' was the last play, in production
when the Globe Playhouse burned down in 1613.) We're told that they
didn't really die when their death certificates stated, they fled; or if
they did die, they left their plays to be published posthumously
(despite topical references in the texts that took place after their
deaths); or some very exciting version of the above, mostly involving
spies and treason.

Happy New Year to All!

Of the Frontline special, "Much Ado About Something," Philip Tomposki
observes:

"Apparently the editors and producers are more interested in gaining
readers/viewers than presenting a balanced, accurate account of the
facts."

Yes. It's such a shame. Maybe PBS ought to change the name of the show
from Frontline to Bottomline?

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.012 Re: Shakespeare and Marlowe

In my post the other day about the Marlowe-is-Shakespeare Frontline, I
wrote:

>Rubbo became enamored of the
>Marlowe-wrote-Shakespeare idea and talked to various Marlovian
>eccentrics (an oxymoron, I know)

As several people pointed out, I really meant to say "tautology" or
"redundancy" rather than "oxymoron", which of course means the opposite
of what I intended.  I can only plead temporary scatter-brainedness
brought on by impending New Year's revelry.  I trust my meaning was
clear from the rest of the post.
