the anti-Niederkorn

Further proof that the budding New York Sun has overtaken the Times in quality of Arts writing, compare to the aforementioned Niederkorn article, Carl Rollyson's review of some of the very same books:

...There is no scrap of paper with Shakespeare's writing on it, Mr. Anderson [author of Shakespeare by Another Name: A Biography of Edward de Vere] notes. But where, I ask, is the Shakespeare manuscript written in the earl's hand?
Tantalizing parallels between the plays and Oxford's life certainly exits--but, then, I find parallels between my own life and the plays. Could I be Shakespeare?
Meanwhile, we still await the sure-to-be incensed letters to the Times from Greenblatt & co. The question is, will they publish them? And will they publish them at all prominently? So far, nothing. (Ok, granted, there is other news going on now...)
