Though ‘the full sense of the concluding line, “I have seen some of your scholars kick up both their heels,” is not quite clear”, one sense, perhaps, is that the scholars have inappropriately been making so merry that they have danced publicly and—given the tendency of Thomas to make double entendres—they may have even engaged openly in sexual congress.

My thanks and congratulations to Prof Gontar for an interesting extension of, and positive comments on, my case for Shakespeare's authorship of 1 Richard II. My only plea is that we all stop calling the play Woodstock, a title imposed on it by FS Boas in 1923. It is properly, Richard II, Part One.
