Ed Pixley provides a totally sensible and sensitive reading of the
verse-image-feeling tensions of Hamlet I.i. Wish I were able to hear
them in performance!
I did not mean to imply that "modern" plays are bereft of image or its
necessary theatrical concomitant, rhythm: Mamet, Pinter, O'Neill, Friel,
Williams are pretty vibrant testament to that.
