Subject:    Gary Taylor's Cardenio

Does anyone have any information on Gary Taylor's 'creative 
re-construction' of Cardenio (by way of Lewis Theobald's Double 
Falsehood)? http://www.victoria.ac.nz/cardenio-colloquium/index.aspx

What is the definition of a 'creative reconstruction'? Did he try to 
edit out Theobald's parts? Did he use the 1612 Shelton translation of 
Don Quixote? And is Taylor's version meant to tell us something about 
the original Shakespeare and Fletcher Cardenio, or is it supposed to 
serve a different purpose?
