Comment:   SHK 20.0097 New Articles in RES

I am curious about the contents of one of the articles Frank Whigham 
mentions in his "New Articles in RES" posting?

If anyone has read Paul Baines's and Pat Rogers's "Pope's First Horatian 
Imitation? Ben Jonson's Crispinus and the Poisoning of Edmund Curll," is 
the 'poisoning of Edmund Curll' being used figuratively or literally?

Why do I ask, you might wonder?

I am interested in the reception of Shakespeare's poetry, including the 

My sense from my reading about Curll's publishing of the unauthorized 
seventh volume of Rowe's edition of Shakespeare and his employing of 
Charles Gildon to "edit" that volume leads me to believe that Curll's 
actions were not held in esteem. If this assumption is so, then I wonder 
without falling into conspiracy thinking if . . .

No, first the article is about Pope, not Shakespeare . . .

But Pope was Shakespeare's next eighteenth-century editor after Rowe, 
perhaps he . . .

Holla, there, Hardy . . . Hold, a minute . . .

This fragment with a good deal more, not recoverable, composed, in a 
sort of Reverie brought on by two grains of opium, taken to check a 
dysentery, at a Farm House between Porlock & Linton, a quarter of a mile 
from Culbone Church.
