Excerpt
As I understand it, the printers often ran out of certain words or letters they had often packed into a ?cliche?...this is the original meaning of the term cliche...and thus, being unwilling to unpack the cliches, and thus you will see some substitutions that look very odd...such as the exchanges of u for v, v for u, above...and you may wonder why they did it this way, presuming Shakespeare did not actually write the play in this manner.... The answer is that they MAY have packed ?liue? into a cliche at a time when they were out of ?v??s...possibly having used ?vv? in place of some ?w??s, etc. This was a common practice of the day, as print was still quite expensive, and they didn?t want to spend more on a wider selection of characters than they had to. You will find a lot of these kinds of ?errors? in this text, as I have mentioned in other times and places, many ?scholars? have an extreme attachment to these errors, and many have accorded them a very high place in the ?canon? of Shakespeare. My father read an assortment of these made available to him by Cambridge University in England for several months in a glass room constructed for the purpose. To the best of my knowledge he read ALL those available ...in great detail...and determined from the various changes, that Shakespeare most likely did not write in nearly as many of a variety of errors we credit him for, even though he was in/famous for signing his name with several different spellings.
