Query for Matt Roth
Dear Matt,

Jansy wondered why I didn't address my concerns regarding Pale Fire
and the Philomela tale to you:

Jansy Mello: That’s my point [I quote a few of my misgivings expressed
in another VN-L posting: “I also stopped to reconsider Matt Roth’s
ideas and realized that his theories about incestuous relations, Hazel
as a nightingale and Shade as “King” ( come herr’, “hombre”, etc. ),
didn’t convince me.”] Why did you address me instead of Matt?

I should have so now I shall. Jansy and I both have problems with this
idea of yours. Would you care to elaborate/defend?
