Subject:        The Forgeries of Jealousy

Possibly having just read the SHAKSPER Archives an author is moved to write:

"Shakespeare-worship sometimes had a strange effect on otherwise sane
people, semi-detaching or totally detaching them from a grasp on reality."

in a book about William-Henry Ireland written at the gallop (but
lightly) and with some arresting and amusing wordsmithy.

"The Great Shakespeare Fraud." Patricia Pierce. Sutton Publishing.(ISBN
0 7509-3393-3)

Also on the topic of shifty Shakespeare scripts a new compilation of
lecture notes:

"Making Shakespeare; From Stage to Page." Tiffany Stern. Routledge.
(ISBN 0 415 31965 X)

gives a compact assessment of the page-to-stage-to-page business.

(This is in the Accents on Shakespeare Series - Generally Edited by a
handsome young tyro Shakespearean.)

Life short - the eyesight shorter. But two books worth wearing one's
goggles for.
