Commentary on SAT conference

William Leahy, John Barton, Tom Hunter, and  Dorna Bewley added commentary to David Aaronovitch’s report on the Nov. 15 Shakespeare Authorship Trust conference at the Globe in London. Aaronovitch’s amusing Nov. 19 report in The Times Online had a decidedly mocking tone that was rebuked by these commentators.

Tom Hunter said to Aaronovitch:

Your skepticism of Shakspere skepticism is well taken. It really will be worth more to you than a few lines of throwaway sarcasm to speak from a bit more knowledge, and you are entirely welcome to make that leap.

The Aaronovitch article is titled “The hunt for the real Shakespeare is a fruitless act: Authorship of the mass of work ascribed to William Shakespeare has long been the subject of debate. David Aaronovitch spends a day in pursuit of the ‘real’ Bard.” It was published Nov. 19, 2009 on The Times Online.
