Subject:     Re: SHAKSPER: Who edited? 

 

Gabriel Egan wrote “not to defend the claim that Florio edited the Folio’s copy, but to argue that Weiss’s response isn’t an adequate refutation of it.”

 

I didn’t claim to refute it, but only to raise questions which I believe have to be answered for us to accept the surmise, and I expressed eagerness to read the forthcoming  book for the answers.

 

As for Gabriel’s quibble that the compositors were identified much less than 200 years ago, I didn’t say it was that long ago.  I merely provided a rough age for the entirety of bibliographical research, not just compositors. If I was less than clear, I apologize to anyone who was offended or misled.
