Cossolotto on About.com

About.com guide Lee Jamieson spoke to Shakespeare Oxford Society Second Vice-president for Publications/Public Relations Matthew Cossolotto for an interview,  “Introducing the Shakespeare Authorship Debate” , published March 9, 2010.

Cossolotto said:

Partisans of the Stratford theory are fond of circular reasoning. “Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare” is a frequent refrain. But partisans of the Stratfordian theory deny even the possibility that “William Shakespeare” could have been a pseudonym. So they shut down the debate and close their minds instead of opening their minds – Maybe I’m naïve, but I always thought true scholarship required an open mind.

Update 3/18/10: Part II of Cossolotto interview.
