Site Update 12/22

Posted By on December 22, 2009

In addition to a handful of recent blogs, the site’s architectural features have been developed quite a bit since the last update.

The highlights include the following new pages or sections:

Up until the present time, I have specifically minimized the implications of the Notes and Queries articles.

But perhaps it’s time to say out loud what I have been thinking for a few years.

Those who still cling to the belief that the de Vere Bible annotations have no connection at all to Shakespeare must, I suggest, come up with an explanation of why someone like myself, a veritable “upstart crow” in the world of Shakespeare and the Bible, could produce the quantity and quality of insight into Shakespeare’s biblical sources that is documented in those essays without having a “cheat sheet.”

I wonder if Dr. Kathman or another of my public critics would care to comment on this point.

Probably not. To do so means to call attention to these articles, and that’s the last thing, apparently, that these folks want to do.

Pity ’tis, ’tis true.

About the author

Roger Stritmatter is a native liberal humorist who lives in Baltimore, Maryland. Contrary to rumor, he does not live on North Avenue. He does, however, work on North Avenue. A pacifist by inclination, one of his heroes is John Brown. But he thinks that Fredrick Douglass, another of his heroes, made the right decision. Stritmatter's primary areas of interest include the nature of paradigm shifts, the history of ideas, forensic literary studies, MS studies, renaissance literature, and the history of the Shakespearean question, the latter a field in which he has published extensively.
