 >From Ron Rosenbaum: "Did Shakespeare
 >love his wife? (Greer: Yes. Greenblatt: No.
 >Actual evidence: Nil.)"

That's ridiculous. Not only is there the sonnet David Basch brings up, 
but isn't the fact that Shakespeare married her evidence of anything 
pertinent? And the fact that he retired to the house in Stratford where 
she lived when it's clear he could have stayed most of each year in 
London, away from her? There's no conclusive evidence, but there is 
surely evidence, that he loved her. I would say there's evidence that he 
didn't, too, I just don't think it very strong.
