Subject:        Re: Available for Comment: The Final Scene of Richard the
Second...

I am curious, do SHAKSPERians agree with the endorsement of Thomas of
Woodstock as a Part One of Richard II, and authorship by Shakespeare?
This seemed to present it as fact.

>I'm currently preparing the Variorum Edition of Richard the
>Second, Part
>One, often called Thomas of Woodstock. [...]

I look forward to reading the downloaded piece. I read Woodstock a few
years back, along with the newly-penned conclusion that the Hampshire
Shakespeare Festival solicited by contest.

I was surprised to hear a scholar pronounce this play's status as an
established fact. As a member of the laity, I hadn't run across this.

I was sure someone else would ring in, but, I haven't seen any follow-up
so far. How do others respond to "Woodstock" as brother to "Richard II"?

Best regards,
Ann Carrigan
