Subject: 14.0366 A Lover's Complaint
Comment:        RE: SHK 14.0366 A Lover's Complaint

What I think is the only reference to A Lover's Complaint (there is no
entry in the index), occurs on page 118.  "While some scholars whose
judgment I respect (notably [MacDonal] Jackson and A. K. Hieatt) argue
for Shakespeare's authorship, it has always seemed to me to have too
many oddities in vocabulary and rhetoric to be easily acceptable, and
some of the counter-evidence cited by Jurgen Schafer, and by Elliott and
Valenza, weaken the case significantly." (V's punctuation).  A notable
dissent by a prestigious critic, but on what is usually considered a
debatable point, and so not really very big news.  Sprry.
