If Shakespeare worshippers have told one story in order to
discredit his contemporary rivals, the New Oxford is telling a
story that aims to give the credit back ... Taylor also once ruled
out Marlowe as a co-author for the 'Henry VI' plays; now he says he
based that judgment on evidence that has since been disproved. 'If
you're an empiricist, when you get new data, you change your mind,'
he told me. 'Unlike politicians, it's a good thing for a scholar to
be a flip-flopper.' * Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, The New Yorker *
As has been the case for more than 30 years, the Authorship Companion is the most useful volume for scholars. * D. Pesta, CHOICE *
