"it means that your satatement is not correct"
It means no such thing - if you re-read the passage you quoted you will notice it refers to a small sequence lasting a few minutes in an hour long Radio Ballad - Cox refers to it as 'the stalking' sequence.
How on earth does one comment by one writer on one sequence of one Radio Ballad contradict what I said.
Shakespeare wrote a few rotten lines, in general, his plays are the finest in English, if not world literature.
Take this further if you wish Dick, for me, it ends here.
