Books Comment of the Day: 'I say that the authorship question is worth exploring'
I submitted the comment yesterday in reply to David Walton's August 7, 2010 review titled:
'Contested Will' from James Shapiro is solid examination of William Shakespeare
Here's the first paragraph of my comment that also features the first sentence of Walton's review:
Regarding your statement, "The question of who else besides William Shakespeare could have written the poems and plays of Shakespeare is undoubtedly one of the most useless, fruitless, and irresolvable that humankind could devise.", I reply that the fact that the authorship inquiry is of no importance to you does not mean that the topic is of no importance.http://www.cleveland.com/books/index.ssf/2010/08/conetsted_will_from_james_shap.html#comments
