        One reason for preferring Jacobi's performance to all others is
that it simply and poignantly captures best the sense of a YOUNG MAN IN
PAIN (no small feat, as Jacobi was pushing 50 or so at the time).
 
        BUT YET...isn't it remarkable how in this post-modern age,
essentiallist concepts of character hang tenaciously on?  Has anyone seen a
weird video called "To Be Hamlet," in which famous Hamlets (Ben Kingsley,
Olivier, and Gielgud among them) discuss the role with an RSC director
(Terry Hands maybe?); it's straight out of A.C. Bradley.  Any info on
tracking down this video?

Thanks to a suggestion given me after I sent last night's announcement
about the list of 1993 NEH Summer Seminars, the information is now available
via gopher at gopher.msstate.edu as well as via anonymous ftp at ftp.msstate.
edu or isis.msstate.edu (or ra.msstate.edu).
