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
Julius Caesar
Twelfth Night

Every one?
