Subject:     Thomas of Woodstock


It has been a year since SHAKSPER published my opinion for a unanimous panel of assessors resolving the dispute between Michael Egan and Ward Elliott & Robert Valenza over the authorship of the anonymous play commonly called “Thomas of Woodstock,” which Egan calls “Richard II, Part One.”  (SHK 22:0209, 8/30/11)   Egan promised to post an “extended response” and “rebuttal” (SHK 22:0239, 9/19/11), and repeated that promise at least three times (SHK 22:0307, 11/16/11).  Since it has now been a year since the opinion was published and Egan has submitted no such thing, we are probably safe in assuming that we may now regard this as a closed case.
