Just a short frivolous comment... (not meant to imply any kind of opinion
on my part). I just finished reading Huck Finn, and came across a part I had
forgotten: the scene where the Duke (or maybe the King, I can't remember now)
tries to reconstruct Hamlet's famous "To be or not to be" speech. It's very
funny; perhaps Twain was making some kind of comment about actors' ability
to memorize, as well.
