Subject:        Shakespeare as Literary Dramatist

I was wondering whether any members of the list have read Lukas Erne's
very recent publication, _Shakespeare as Literary Dramatist_ (Cambridge,
2003), and what their reaction to it is. I've not seen very much
coverage of it so far, other than a review in the TLS, but it seems to
me that if Erne's claims are correct - e.g. that the King's Men had a
coherent strategy for putting Shakespeare's plays into print, and that
Sh. wrote his longer plays with a reading public very much in mind -
then the implications for scholarship are mind-boggling. Does anyone
have any thoughts on this?
