Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1268 Only Outrageous Positions

Outrageous positions are sometimes correct, but even when they're not,
they offer a chance to get close to the text in new ways. The notion
that Shakespeare was a crypto-Jew strikes me as absurd, but when (not
often) I have the patience to follow this argument, I enjoy re-reading
the old lines from different perspectives.
