Dear Hardy Cook:

 

1. The report is not objective, despite its faux-academic tone and format, and completely misrepresents my book and its case.

 

It is, in fact, a hatchet job and was so from the beginning. This is why I withdrew from participation.

 

2. I will reply with specifics in due course and request that this listserv publishes my response to the same extent, manner, and degree as it publishes the report.

  

3. Please keep me fully informed of any related discussion on this listserv, and allow me to respond.

 

Thank you, 

Michael Egan

During Ward Elliott's Golden Ear tests, I proved to have one ear with a slight golden tinge and one leaden ear.  But let me suggest that any others on this list with tin ears who might be persuaded by Michael Egan's Woodstock theory can perform a simple but tedious test of the "Shakespeareaness" of the play:  first transcribe a couple of canonical plays, then type out Woodstock and anything else from the apocrypha.  

 

I did that a few years ago with Woodstock, Edward III, Sir John Oldcastle, and "Famous Victories of Henry Fift."  At the end of the exercise, I could not believe that the author of the canon had anything in common with the other playwrights other than, say, use of a quill pen.  For the most part they are deservedly anonymous.

 

Cheers,

Al Magary
