Steve Evans Hello Maree - thank you for this. No, I have not read Roger Peters but do have his four volume study, which is on my "one day" list. A friend says…moreHello Maree - thank you for this. No, I have not read Roger Peters but do have his four volume study, which is on my "one day" list. A friend says it's quite good, so maybe I will push it up toward the top. The Sonnets seem to be an inexhaustible source of speculation (including by me).

Meanwhile I am working on something of my own (not to do with Shakespeare), which comes first, as it must.

Thanks again.

Hello there. It is a crisp and windy morning in the quaint village near the Ruahine range in New Zealand where I am presently parked in a tranquil cottage not far from the railway line. That may seem a contradiction as the wagons roll along the track, but it isn’t – the noise, even at 3 AM, is not at all irritating.

For months I have been working through the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard’s mem... Read more of this blog post »
