What with the SAA coming up next month and a number of other projects in progress, it might be a little while before I have a chance to consider Michael Egan’s 40-page single spaced submission and consult my colleagues on the panel as to whether any reconsideration of our opinion is warranted, but this surely should not take a year and a half.

 

In the meantime, I would be grateful if anyone would let me know, on SHAKSPER or privately, if they think Egan has made valid criticisms.

I enjoyed reading Michael Egan’s defense, which I thought was well presented and generally informative.  

 

One point in his conclusion puzzles me, however. He says that 1 Richard II must have been written “decades” before Shakespeare composed works such as 2 Henry VI. Is there a misprint here?
