Comment: 	Re: SHK 18.0407 A Thoroughly Modern Willie Censorial

Seems to me the only reason Thorpe would have to falsely include "A 
Lover's Complaint" with the sonnets would be to boost sales, but I don't 
see how it would.  Therefore, it seems to me he actually thought the 
poem was by Shakespeare.  But what's the fun of being a Shakespeare 
scholar if you can't take works away from Will that have his name on 
them, and give him works that don't have his name on them?
