New tactic: Who cares?

Philadelphia Inquirer staff writer John Timpane wrote an interesting article about the addition of Cardenio/Double Falsehood to the Arden Shakespeare series, “The stamp of Shakespeare’s on it: A play bearing much of the Bard” dated March 23, 2010.

Timpane gives a clear and nuanced account of the complex situation regarding the Arden editors’ addition of Cardenio/Double Falsehood to the canon. The convoluted story makes the addition seem so pointless that a reader might be forgiven for wondering if there might be a political motive for adding seventeenth-century, collaborative material to the canon. Timpane’s experts sliced Shakespeare so fine it hardly seemed to matter who this pathetic collaborator might actually be.
