Free Webcast of April 26 Authorship Discussion!

Follow this link for free registration for this Friday's Shakespeare authorship discussion at the Stratford-upon-Avon Literary Festival between MSC contributor Ros Barber and Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's Paul Edmondson and Stanley Wells.  This webinar is sponsored by Cambridge University Press.  Should be very interesting!

Well done Ros. Excellent performance!

Ros, after reading the transcript, you are my hero. You held a logical and clear point of view throughout, in response to which Edmonton and Wells had no recourse but to appeal to really the worst argumentative methods - dismissiveness, ad hominem attacks, focussing on the "psychology" of opponents. Very little hard evidence and logic. Amazing that so much denial of any doubt whatsoever despite so little evidence should make fools of intelligent men. And I've got a lot of time for Well's scholarship. But today, you're my hero, Ros.

Thank you both for your kind comments. How nice to be someone's hero, Dan! It was a pleasure to expose their evidential and logical fallacies. I have a recording of the webinar itself (which my husband captured using Camtasia) which I intend to break into 10-minute chunks and post onto Youtube in the next few days. You will find it is even more fun to listen to than to read!
