I'm afraid we're still scarcely doing justice to the complexities posed
by Satia Testman's question.  Textual evidence, indeed! Such pedantry
merely obscures the issue. I blame the parents. In fact, call me a
suspicious old sod, but the silence, nay absence of Mrs Polonius has
always struck me as deeply  significant.  Not that we ever got on.
