Comment: Re: SHK 21.0012 Shakespeare's Literary "Intentions"
Since Steve Roth hasn't defended the following statement, shall we
attack it a little further?
>(As Erne points out, prior to 1603, every one of
>his plays that was not somehow constrained -- by a competing/preceding
>stationer's registration or the like -- was in fact published, generally
>within a year or two of staging.)
In what way were the following plays "constrained" -- and what is
special about 1603 anyway?
Two Gentlemen of Verona
Henry VI, Part One
The Comedy of Errors
