Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1927 King John and The Troublesome Play

Thanks to all for useful responses and especially Gabriel Egan (no
relation) for calling my attention to the John Klause piece. Brian
Vickers with his usual grace kindly sent me a prepublication copy of his
forthcoming essay, 'The Troublesome Raigne, George Peele, and the date
of King John', an extension of his Titus chapter in Shakespeare,
Co-Author, proving that Peele had a hand in The Troublesome Raigne. This
is undoubtedly a landmark contribution to the debate about this play and
whether it is prior or subsequent to King John. For what it's worth, I
believe that it precedes KJ and that, as I'll try to show in a
forthcoming essay in A Student's Companion to Shakespeare (Greenwood
Press, 2004), Shakespeare also had a hand in it, rewriting the play
around the time of Peele's death ca. 1597.
