Subject:        Second-Hand Fighting and Monsters

I'm almost positive that somewhere in Shakespeare there are several
second-hand descriptions of an offstage combat.  But I spent a lot of
yesterday thumbing through the plays and could not seem to find one.

I also was looking for an instance where a character has met a monster
or mythological beast.  Of course the ideal circumstance would be a
character recalling a fight with a monster.

PS: Yes,Titus has reached Washington DC; in just one theater, and I
haven't made it to that side of the city yet.  So I've been saving all
of your comments to look at after.
