Comment:        RE: SHK 11.1163 A Shrew

I'm sure many people will suggest Corambis for Polonius as quite as
radical a change, but by the way, the name Petruchio is used in one
primary source: The Supposes by Gascoigne from Ariosto's Supositi where
he is a servant and minor character.  Is this an example of early modern
postmodernism after Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead?
