Dave Evett's reference to the RSC production of *MM* strikes a chord.
The play bears on issues of human fragility.  "Glassy" is among others
one of the images conveying that fragility.  Also, the sense of the
hazards of ice are referenced.  Since I am on the run, and working from
memory, I cannot continue with the catalogue.  However, one of the
several elements that brings the play nearer to what we regard as
tragedy is the serious sort of peripetia that undermines characters'
certainty about self, position, value system.

Terence Hawkes writes re the Globe Theatre:

It is a bit hard on Sam Wanamaker to accuse him of not seeing the joke.
After all, "on its completion" he'd been dead for a couple of years.

Cheers,
Peter

>I also claim that an

A comment on the above opinion may be helpful. It is unwise to presume
that an authors apparent neutrality is absolute. It may be just neutral
about judgements of the morality of others actions. "Judge not lest ye
be judged may be something some may actually practice. Others may think
that it can not be practiced. Not projecting either your own, or local
stereotypes of morality on to others may be a plug for compassion and
tolerance. That sounds a bit circular, but the difference is that
compassion and tolerance may be a way of life and nothing to do with any
formulated code ie moral codes are generalised rules needed for the
confused (which may be most of us). But like music the sound comes first
not the analysis.

Subject: 8.0645  Q: Pronunciation of Cloten
Comment:        RE: SHK 8.0645  Q: Pronunciation of Cloten

This would be easier to respond to helpfully (or not at all) if one knew
what authorities were being drawn on for early pronunciation. In any
case, it would be helpful to many concerned if the International
Phonetic Alphabet were used to indicate the pronunciations.

Cheers,
Tom
