The kind of "careful" John Reed has in mind is exhibited in a book not
on his list, Brian Vickers' *Shakespeare: Co-Author." He does not
address *Mac* as a case by itself, but his introductory discussion of
the question of multiple authorship includes several references to that
play, which mount up to a fairly full review of the published
scholarship through 2001.
Anybody on the list close enough to the Middleton project to know what
its editors are doing with this?
