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.
