Comment:      RE: SHK 21.0221  Hammond Edition of Double Falsehood

The problem with Ron Rosenbaum's argument that <Double Falsehood> doesn't
sound Shakespearean is that all of the examples he gives in his article are
from Acts IV and V, which are from portions of the original play that are
believed to be by John Fletcher. More damaging to his argument is that all
of the examples he gives do, in fact, sound suspiciously like something that
might have been written by Fletcher. For any who might be interested, I
give more details in the rebuttal to his article that I've posted at:
