Bard barb

July 7, 1995

Ann Thompson (THES, June 23) calls my book The Real Shakespeare "pugilistic" and so forth. But I am dealing with people like Ann Thompson, whose 1984 Cambridge edition of The Taming of the Shrew posits a memorial reconstructor who forgot every single line of the 2,500 he was trying to reconstruct. What can I do but say that this is obvious and outrageous nonsense?
