Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0030 Re: Claudius and the Mousetrap

Patrick Stewart's version of Claudius, as described by Mark Mann, seems to
sidestep what is implied by the words, "Give me some light."  This line
suggests an inner anguish and confusion which, it seems to me, is brought out
clearly in those performances in which we know Claudius is genuinely disturbed
by what he sees.
