Bernice Kliman's nice explanation reminds us of one of Harold Bloom's
best points, that in Shakespeare we have living consciousness in
characters who are aware of what they think and say and can literally
change their minds in the midst of a thought or statement. This is
something the stage inheritors of Lee Strasberg find rather difficult,
so intent do they appear to be on momentary `intentions' that last too
long and cannot admit of rapid motiveless motivation.

In the days of the pit trio or quartet, which was a theatrical given of
my youth, when Wolfit brought the curtain down on the first "act" of
LEAR, the violin, cello & piano at His Majesty's Theatre [a lovely
19th.Century velvet and gilt house] swung gently into "It was Only
Fascination, You Know" and the ice-cream ladies started along the isles.
We were pretty good at suspending disbelief as we weren't part of a
society that spelled art with a capital A.

G.L. Horton-While you're in London you might be interested in a
conference that Lizbeth Goodman and Jane de Gay are organizing for the
Open University called "Gender and the Field of Vision". It will be held
on Saturday July 5th at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill, London.  You
can get more information about the conference by emailing

 .  I don't know the program off the top of my head
but there will certainly be talks and performances about women and
theatre.
