Do You Believe That Aristotle Wrote a (Lost) Treatise on Comedy?

No. Not only do I not believe it, I know for a fact he did not. Aristotle wrote nothing (he was, sadly, illiterate), and the writings commonly attributed to him are, in fact, the work of the Earl of Oxford.

The Earl, however, did write a lost treatise on comedy, though "lost" is, perhaps, not quite the word, since it has been in plain sight this entire time. (Simply read The Taming of the Shrew backwards, and you will see what I mean.)
