Subject:      Middleton and Macbeth

For those who haven't seen it, there is a knock-down debate raging in the pages of
TLS between Brian Vickers and the Oxford Editors over whether or not Middleton had a
hand in Macbeth. Vickers had an article in late May supporting Shakespeare's sole
authorship and taking Gary Taylor to task. The Letters column in the following issue
included letters from Stanley Wells and John Jowett defending Taylor and attacking
Vickers, including on the ground that Vickers himself "deconstructed" Shakespeare in
showing that Shakespeare collaborated in other plays, as if that debarred him from
saying he did not collaborate on Macbeth. Vickers replies in the current issue.
