Abstract

Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s statements about their boycott of Shakespeare Books & Antiques is an instance of Orwellian doublethink. OSF’s representatives claim that they are not boycotting the store, merely declining to patronize it, and that they are not asking for censorship, but requesting that the owner consider the feelings of others and remove the offending item.
