Comment: RE: SHK 8.0614 Re: Locrine
I missed the earliest iterations of Jonathan Hope's search for an author
to *Locrine*. Is he aware that Sir George Buc, the Master of the Revels,
wrote in his own copy of the play that it had been written by his
cousin, Charles Tilney? The issue is discussed in Marc Eccles's
biography of Buc, included in the volume *Thomas Lodge and Other
Elizabethans*, edited by C.J. Sisson. Quite apart from the family
connection, Buc was better placed than virtually anyone else to
determine the authorship of plays, and seems to have spent time doing so
- a subject Alan Nelson is pursuing, as you will see if you track down
his Web site at Berkeley.
