Subject:        Historians Today

Marika Sherwood, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Commonwealth
Studies, University of London writes ('Black People in Tudor England',
History Today, Vol. 53(10) Oct 2003, p.  42)

"[...] Shakespeare appears to have been in love with a black woman, to
judge by one of his sonnets [...]".

In the same publication, (p.31) Daniel Snowman, interviewing Lisa
Jardine, attributes to her the following sentiment, "[...] Jardine
learned far more from her bunfights with the Americans than from their
'dignified' British counterparts [...]".

The sub-editor helpfully reproduces these extracts in 24 point bold
between heavy borders within the full articles for the short-sighted.

There was a leader in the Literary Review recently about modern
historians.

Best,
Graham Hall
