I think "absolutely" is, well, too absolute a word! It *may* have some connection to
Shakespeare; it is more probable that it has "some connection" to Fletcher.

I actually enjoyed reading the Theobald edition I got from Google Books. I plan to read the other
editions, esp since I just got a ticket to see it at the Union Theatre in London on August 17. It is
such a connection to his other plays.
