A correction: the *Hamlet* piece mentioned by E. Pearlman is in the November 20
issue of the New Yorker.

Oops...
 
I know, I know. My memory did not serve me right as to the Restoration *Lear*
which is not by Dryden and Davenant, but by Nahum Tate as many of you pointed
out. Dryden and Davenant did rewrite a Shakespeare play, though: *The Tempest;
or the Happy Island*. Sorry about this mistake.
 
By the way, are these reworkings of Shakespeare's plays ever performed these
days?
 
Yours.
Jesus Cora

A question, maybe an odd question:  We know that early modern Englanders
generally read aloud rather than to themselves.  Is there any evidence that
they may have been more inclined to THINK aloud than we do? Chaucer's *The
Miller's Tale*, some of you will remember, seems to rely on this possibility
when Nicholas exclaims "A berd! A berd!"
 
Incidentally, is it an article of faith that "soliloquy" has to mean talking
*to* oneself?  Can't it also mean talking *by* oneself?
