The claim of Christopher Carolan's most interesting ->blog, discussing the Shakespeare Authorship Question as representing a "post-Stratfordian perspective", is a bit unfair: it's not a "post-Stratfordian" but an "Oxfordian perspective".
The blog is - as Carolan writes - an unauthorized spin-off of ->Quake-speare Shorterly, Rambler’s ground-breaking look into the textual contexts and literary scenes of Elizabethan and early Jacobean England, all from an Oxfordian perspectiive.
Its an extreme valuable piece of information. In Carolans initial blog starting with a look at Chapman’s "The Gentleman Usher ". - one can easily agree that the character "Medice" fits best to William, the Stratfordman.
“Medice. My lord, away with these scholastic wits,
Lay the invention of your speech on me,
And the performance too; I’ll play my part
That you shall say, Nature yields more than Art.(1)
Alphonso. Be’t so resolv’d; unartiﬁcial truth
An unfeign’d passion can decipher best.
This is undoubtedly a metapher that reminds us of a deceit, of the exchange between a scholastic wit (Marlowe?) and an outdoorsman (Shakspere?)
Unfortunately, Carolan was halfway stuck. The "post-Stratfordian perspective" would probably have opened for Carolan, if he had been thinking a little deeper about the disputable authenticity of George Chapman ( Chapman s. previous Blog 311)
