George Peele, a third of "Titus Andronicus";
Thomas Middleton about two-fifths of "Timon of Athens";
George Wilkins, two of the five acts of "Pericles" ;
John Fletcher, more than half of "Henry VIII."
and two-fifths of "The Two Noble Kinsmen,"
A reasonable opposition is likely not going to disappear, ridiculing Vickers efforts and denying the presence of any other hand than Shakespeare’s in the Canon. Vickers seems to have noticed that he navigated between Skylla and Charbydis, between Stratfordian tradition and a new thinking, approaching the authorship territory , when he wrote : " The issue of simultaneous collaboration or not is hard to settle,…But, I’d be very unhappy to think that my exposure of Shakespeareans‘ Shilly-Shallying on the coauthorship issue were to be exploited by the so called Anti-Stratfordians“. →Niederkorn ( New York Times Sept.2nd 2003
Vickers seems half way to have lost his intuition and deviated from the right track. Primarily there are no objections against his remarkable discoveries of "contextuals and linguistic blocks" in Shakespeare‘s plays also appearing in texts of authors named Peele, Middleton(Thomas),Wilkins and Fletcher(John). His elaborate observations are correct, yet his interpretations seems to be inadequate.
The significant and non coincidental results only at a first glance indicate, that Shakespeare collaborated with these authors. But at a second glance the basic assumption ("premiss") that the true Poet-Genius impossibly can have been the man from Stratford, but concealed his identity and wrote behind obscure Initials, masking names of living [like Shakespeare,] or deceased persons or pseudonyms like Middleton (s.→QUIZ. Nr5, Nr52), Peele (s.→QUIZ. Nr 7), Wilkins (s.→QUIZ.Nr. 67,68,9) and Fletcher (s.→QUIZ. Nr. 58 ) leads to a more plausible interpretation:
Does anybody really believe that the ingenious, hyperdynamic, selfconfident and highly superior poet Genius and Playwright who wrote Hamlet was a „teamplayer“ and willing or able to collaborate with "inferiors" ? Because of very many reasons this will not make enough sense.
Vickers seems to anticipate implicitly that on the long run his results will only be accepted by accepting and solving the authorship problem.
