Comment:        RE: SHK 15.1508 Timon of Athens

Bob G. writes: "The reason Timon seems unfinished to me--a first draft,
to be accurate--is simply that it's a terrible play...."

The premise that Shakespeare's method of working was to write a bad play
first and add poetry, complexity, and a good plot in later drafts should
maybe be thought through again.
