Subject:     1 Richard II

 

Jed Serrano has read Larry Weiss’s vicious and inaccurate attack on my ascription of 1 Richard II to Shakespeare and finds it convincing. However he hasn’t read my original statement nor my reply. When you have done so, Sir, let’s hear from you again.

For what it’s worth, Appleton Morgan refers to “anti-Shakespeareans”  (The Shakespeare Myth, 1883, 174ff). May be of anti-Shakespearean coinage. It’s a good enough term, in my opinion, for the unmentionable topic.

I’m calling a halt to this thread. It doesn’t seem to me that there is anywhere else to go with it. It’s a case of PO-TAE-TOES and PO-TAT-TOES. 

 

But since I have the privilege of having the last word, logic, it seems, would dictate that if you support someone other than William Shakespeare as author then you are Anti-Shakespearean. As Shakespeare scholars are taking back the ground lost to the popular media, it’s just a story-Mac, Shakespeare scholars have the right to reclaim the terminology that has been co-opted by the opposition to define the terms by Shakespearean ones rather than by Anti-Shakespearean ones.
