Comment: Re: SHK 14.1513 Re: Dyer's Hand
The word "Dyer's," by the way, is capitalized, along with only a couple
of other words in the original l609 edition.
The Dyer's Hand also provided the title for two of the more interesting
literary works of their period, my old benefactor W.H. Auden's "The
Dyer's Hand" and, more importantly, Alden Brooks's "Will Shakspere and
the Dyer's Hand"(Scribner's l943).The New York Times found Brooks's
earlier effort, "Will Shakspere, Factotum and Agent", one of the two
best books on Shakespeare of l937 and Maxwell Perkins, Ernest Hemingway,
and my good friend Marguerite Young ("Miss Mackintosh, My Darling")
evidenced equal enthusiasm for the second.
