Excerpt from Montaigne and Shakespeare: And Other Essays on Cognate Questions
This said, I leave for another time, or to other hands, the systematic discussion as to what is and is not genuine in the Shakespeare plays. That these problems must and will be grappled with, I am assured. The recent confident deliverance of Mr. C. F. Tucker Brooke, that all attempts to deprive the poet of a large interest in any of the thirty-six plays have failed,1 is only a suggestion to the effect that, despite such admirable critical work as Professor Bradley's, little contri bution to the undertaking from English academic sources is now to be looked for beyond the useful item of careful collation of texts. Our problems, however, must be handled in detail; and it is possible to isolate for the time being the general question of critical method, and that of a particular literary inﬂuence.
