with Kevin Gilvary, Ros Barber and Alexander Waugh (2 "Oxie's and 1 Anti-Strad') spending the hour laying out the case of the SOF that Oxford was the true Shakespeare.
To my great surprise two questions of Jeff Riley made it clear, that Ros Barber is by no means (or no more) a Marlowian.!
Question Jeff Riley (1) : "What do you see as some of the holes in the Oxford Arguments because you do not buy it is necessarily the Earl of Oxford."
Answer Ros Barber (1) . "Well I am open - you know - to the Oxfordian theory. I am kind of interested in - You know - trying to make the authorship case a valid question that's the most important thing as far as I am concerned..."
Question Jeff Riley (2): Is there a stronger case to be made for Marlowe [than for Oxford]
Answer Ros Barber (2) [... not answering the question.....] I like the Marlowe case for a number of reasons, partly because he is a very successful writer up to the point where he is supposed to have died (.....) A very interesting dramatic character, he is the kind of a person - you know- you may want to write these great works...
How disappointing! Ros Barber - I anticipated it - seems not familiar enough with deeper literary contemporary contexts...
