RE Paulina. I don't think Hermione is an object to be 'given' to anyone. I
have always heard in the subtext of the  reiterated pleas from Paulina to
Hermione ( and directed the scene this way) a range of emotions: it's
time! don't be afraid! heve you changed your mind? "Dear life redeems you"
- there is something/someone  to come alive for. I think even Paulina is
not sure that Hermione will find the strength of will or the love to
"Bequeath to death [her]numbness" - that even Paulina is in suspense about
her decision by the end of 'redeems you' V,iii, 98-104. It seems to me that
it is not only Leontes who must be ready for redemption but Hermione, like
Prospero, must become ready [ off stage in this case] to redeem and be
redeemed.
 
P.S. I've never seen the play done well? Has anyone seen a good
production? The Brian Bedford at Stratford completely confused several
experienced playgoers of  my aquaintance - they had not read the play first
and the production was incoherent.

Comment:        Re: SHK 5.0195  Noh and Shakespeare: Australian Lecture
 
In response to Gordon Beattie's message, Professor Kuniyoshi Munakata gave
a demonstration of part of his Noh adaptation of *Hamlet* at the recent
Australia and New Zealand Shakespeare Association Conference in Perth.  I
would recommend it to anyone who can get to UWS.

Jonathan Bate says that William Hazlitt originated the colonialist inter-
pretation of *The Tempest*, in an 1818 response to a lecture by Coleridge.
See Bate, *Shakespearean Constitutions:  Politics, Theatre, Criticism,
1730-1830* (Oxford, 1989), pp. 144 and 178-79.
