Comment: Re: SHK 17.0258 Chettle, Greene, Shake-scene
Thanks for the link to the full text of Chettle's preface, Jeffrey.
I'll get back to you about what you said in your post in a day or two, I
hope. My first impression is that you're just repeating yourself, and
mostly not seeming to grasp my arguments. You did clear up one
misunderstanding of mine--you are saying Lyly was offended by being
associated with the wrong crowd, and/or with a playwright Greene called
an atheist (but there's good reason to believe Greene also called
Marlowe a homosexual, which was the part of the Groatsworth Chettle
deleted as editor before publication).
