Just watched Germain Greer wafflie on tv this morning.

I suppose I was hoping for some new revelation, what with her having a Phd, but nothing of the sort, of course.

blahdeeblahdee blah.

By her own admission her new book is full of guesses, but I guess her bank account isn't.

These so-called academics come out with some right old bilge when the subject turns to Shakespeare. But where are they when challenged?

regards all

Suggest you actually read her introduction to Shakespeare before you condemn one of the more insightful writers on Shakespeare alive today.

That is why I suggested reading the introduction - the first thing she does there in chap 1 (and it is now a little out of date) is to give exactly the 'known' documentary limits on Shakespeare and point out that ANYONE writing about Willy is speculating - she doesn't need it dragging out of her.
The question is on what the speculation is based!
Greer's PhD was on Shakespeare's comedy - since then she has risen to being 'Professor' at Warwick and has continued her studies of Shakespeare and his times - her depth of Knowledge is undoubted.
