Harold Bloom argues well in his recent book that Shakespeare wrote the
Ur-Hamlet. If he wanted the new Hamlet to supersede the old, wouldn't
that be a good reason for the Ur-Hamlet to have vanished?

This reminds me to ask, what is the consensus these days on 'Fratricide
Revenged'?  I remember reading in Trewin's book on 'Hamlets' that it was
successfully staged as a comedy in Edinburgh, and it was my crackpot
theory that it was a satire, probably intended for the fairgrounds.

Cheers,
