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?
