Subject:    Lukas Erne's Book Trade (Correction)


In Steve Roth’s submission of yesterday, I mistakenly made a change that he did not intended. I have corrected the passage below and in the archive to read as Steve wished it to read. My apologies. 



3. By arguably his most prized audience, Elizabeth and James’ courtiers.


These were also the most educated, attentive, and perspicacious of his customers, those who (Shakespeare could hope) would plumb the density, complexity, allusions, and multilevel ironies he offered up. (Think: Jonson’s frequently expressed obsession with this audience, and Hamlet’s “caviary to the general.”)
