Subject: 19.0434 RT: Shakespeare's Intentions Reactions
Comment:    Re: SHK 19.0434 RT: Shakespeare's Intentions Reactions

I rather like Felix de Villiers' suggestion for a roundtable on "style"; but I 
think the subject may be too open ended unless it is focused more precisely on 
either some aspect of style (e.g., rhetorical figures, imagery, syntactical and 
grammatical irregularity) or -- preferably -- questions of how we perceive and 
distinguish style.  The latter would explore the extent to which style may 
reliably be quantified (stylometry) and the question of whether there is an 
intellectual facility for recognizing stylistic differences without the aid of 
number crunchers (a "golden ear").
