…And by that I mean the spelling of his name. I get that Biron / Berowne are the same person, but what’s the story on the change? I actually flipped through a Who’s Who book at Borders the other day looking up Berowne, and he wasn’t even listed under that name, not even a “See Biron.”
To add a little more depth to the question, how about pronunciation? I found this via Google books :
Biron, or Berowne, as it appears in the early copies, is accented on the second syllable and rhymes with “moon”.
Really? So those are both pronounced the same way? If I saw Biron I would assume was pronounced more like BYE-run.
