Mr. Drakakis makes a slight error, when he comments that "[LLW] occupies
the same position as the Ur Hamlet". With the Ur-Hamlet, we can at
least, based on the source material compared to "Hamlet" as it ended up,
make some sort of an educated guess as to the contents of the Ur-Hamlet,
while "Love's Labour's Wonne" could, in theory, be anything.

Subject:        A shrewd assessment

Stephen Miller (9 Apr. LLW thread) correctly cites, of course, the two
different "Shrews" (notwithstanding their own related controversies)
when he mentions his thesis footnote. Pottesman's discovery does not, as
he asserts, "disprove" (Oh monstrous arrogance, I fear it is too
choleric a meat) anything. It adds to the complexity, which is not quite
the same thing. Soft son, the zeal of the certain is mere sunburn from
the blessed moonshine.

The Shakespeare Institute gave a rather good "A Shrew" a couple of years
back, a recording of which remains I believe.

Good health,
Graham Hall
