Comment:        Re: SHK 15.1755 Eric Sams / Edward III

I think the most accurate way of wording current opinion on Ed3 would be
to say that a majority of scholars interested in such things accept that
there is Shakespeare in it, but the question of extent is still extant.

Eric did much to keep the issue of authorship alive, but I'm afraid his
cavalier approach to evidence meant that his work didn't (for me anyway)
establish anything.

I once had a very genial lunch with him though, so I wish him well as he
travels the space ways.

Comment:        SHK 15.1755 Eric Sams / Edward III

I remember a Renaissance seminar at Merton College, Oxford, where it was
certainly not "widely accepted". Professor Emrys Jones was, as I recall,
particularly dismissive of the case put by Eric Sams.
