The →Deutsche Shakespeare-Gesellschaft (DSG, German Shakespeare Society) , founded April 23 1864 on the occasion of Shakespeare's 300th birthday, is one of the world's oldest literary association. The Society holds annual conferences and edits →the Shakespeare-Yearbook, with an annual section of Book Reviews related to Shakespeare.
In 2009 , 2011 and 2014, I allowed myself to write a letter to the actual Presidents of the DSG, sending the thesis or the book "→The True Shakespeare: Christopher Marlowe" and asking for a discussion or critical review of the book in the section of the Yearbook book .
In his recent book "Our Shakespeare (2014)" Frank Günther (currently best known German Shakespeare translator) gave a general advise against Antistratfordians: Do not even ignore them!- (s.→Blog 116) . He wrote
Translation: Do not feed the trolls. Do not even ignore them, when the Anti-Shakespeareans knock loudly at the door, seeing themselves as heroic Davids against Goliath and when they call "on an equal footing" for a debate about "Nonsense" .
(Dont feed the troll !" Noch nicht einmal ignorieren sei die Haltung der genervten Literaturwissenschaft, wenn die Anti-Shakespeareaner an die Türen donnerten und als heroische David's gegen Goliath "Debatten auf Augenhöhe über Unsinn" forderten. )
This seems to correspond perfectly to the strategy of all 3 presidents: None of them ever replied to the letters (asking for a critical Review of the book)
