A piece of Longworth trivia: Clara Longworth lived in Cincinnati, and
was a permanent resident of the Vernon Manor Hotel. She was not well
thought of by the local literati. Somehow I doubt if her French
translation was ever standard, but I could be wrong.

Hamlet en francais

The play was translated almost a year ago by the Acadian playwright
Antonine Maillet for a production at the Theatre de Rideau Vert in
Montreal. Weak, I think.
