Comment:        Re: SHK 14.2113 Burgess Short Story

The Anthony Burgess short story is called "The Muse."  It was first
published in The Hudson Review in 1968.  Burgess recycled it in
<Enderby's Dark Lady> published in 1984.  He also included another short
story called "Will and Testament' that opens <Enderby's Dark Lady>. That
story explains how Will got his name in Psalm 46.  Burgess wrote "Will
and Testament" in 1976 and read it at the Folger Library for a
celebration of Shakespeare and the American Bicentennial.  Both stories
are entertaining.

Burgess includes such a story in the novel, Enderby's Dark Lady, as if
Enderby got the idea from a college student and followed through with
it.
