Comment:        RE: SHK 16.0256 Greenblatt Discussion Forum

When and where did Shakespeare learn Hebrew?  Do we have any
evidence--apart from secret codes--that demonstrate his knowledge of
Hebrew?  David Basch's work is so easily parodied--in fact I'm inclined
to read it as Swiftian satire--that I'd like to know if these claims
have any more legitimacy than the claims about Paul McCartney being dead
or Elvis being alive.
