RE: Mike Fields / Gloucester's blinding

I think that the folio omits the lines of the servants after the blinding,
which appear only in the 1608 quarto.  You might want to consult TAYLOR and
WARREN's DIVISION OF THE KINGDOM.  Those very sensitive lines were written, it
seems, to get Glouceseter off stage, clean him, up bandagethose missing orbs
and send him out into the next scene.  With an "act pause" as there may have
been after 1608-ish, all this is unnecessary, as the act pause give the actor a
chance to do this while the audience goes out to smoke cigarettes, eat ice
cream, have a coca-cola.

Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0830 Re: Hamlet as Sleuth

Many thanks for the respondents to my question re Hamlet as sleuth manquee.

I would be grateful for the complete Peter Alexander reference, "Hamlet, Father
and Son" as well as the reference cited from CURTAINS.

My first pass on DYSTHYMIC DICKS FROM DUPIN TO CRACKER will appear next month
in Psychiatric Times (I'm in the process of expanding this to a larger
article). If anyone wants a copy of the Times piece, send me your address.
