Comment:        Re: SHK 11.0973 Re: Shakespearean Insults

I wonder if anyone has pushed this sort of table further, to write (say)
a Shakespearean tragedy.  The user (or computer) would choose a locale,
a tragic hero, something he does, who urges him on, and the form in
which nemesis arrives.  Umberto Eco did something similar, but not
specifically Shakespearean, in an essay called "make your own movie".
Such a plot-generating engine might be handy for teaching certain types
of structuralism.

Cheers,
Se
