Comment:        Re: SHK 11.2067 Book Announcement

Hi there,

Diana's book is another hole in the dyke of the 'Orthodox' authorship
question. (Is Shakespeare the sea or the dyke)? Apparently from the
blurbs she has new evidence that Shakes was indeed a shakedown artist
and some aristocrat wrote the lot. Who? She doesn't say in the blurb,
but I fear it's Looney's friend.

She has a link on her author's page to Dave Kathman and Terry Ross'
site. Anybody have any info on this new unbiased evidence she's
presenting? Or is it a new bias on old evidence? Sorry I'm too cheap to
spend the forty dollars and find out. Maybe Diana herself can reply to
me off list. The authorship question being taboo.

I wait with bated breath paddling in the swirling pool at the foot of
the dyke.


[Editor's Note: William is correct. Any responses should take place
privately and not on the list. I posted Diana Price's announcement
because it corresponded to the guidelines that were established a year
or so ago. I post William Sutton's response for more information, but I
will not post discussion of the content or arguments associated with the
work. -HMC]
