Subject:        Query about caesurae
 
For Sean Lawrence: The best study of caesurae in Shakespeare's verse is George
T. Wright's book on *Shakespeare's Metrical Art* (Univ. California Press,
1988).

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0247 Re: Hamlet's Book
 
Pat Buckridge is quite right to identify "Hamlet's Book" as Girolamo Cardano's
COMFORTE since the heavy weight of scholarship lies behind the attribution.
Hardin Craig and Alice Harmon wrote learnedly on this subject sixty years ago.
For what it's worth, though, Philippe du Plessis du Mornay's >Excellens traitez
et discours de la vie et de la mort< (Laussane 1576) also offers a grabbag of
Hamlet-like musings. And there may be other treatises that do so as well that I
know not of. The point is that Hamlet's deliberations are steeped in the
faddish neostoic "topics" of the times. Senecan discourses turn out to be
intricate exercises in intertextuality.
