Subject:      Review of Arden Double Falsehood

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

List members might be interested in my skeptical take on the Arden decision to publish <Double Falsehood> under the "The Arden Shakespeare" imprimatur. There is nothing wrong with publishing a scholarly edition of Theobald's concoction, but I suggest that "The Arden 'May Contain Some Shakespeare' Shakespeare" as a more accurate description. 

I am not alone: Tiffany Stern's doubts are given the last word in the editor's introduction to this new edition.

My essay can be found on <Slate> here: http://www.slate.com/id/2253826/

Best wishes,
Ron Rosenbaum
Author of <The Shakespeare Wars>
