Although I don't really have an opinion regarding an underlying incest
theme in the play.  I am curious about the phrase used by Manuela
Rossini: "sedimented in the text of the play at its originary moment of
production." Is this the euphemism to which the taboo on reference to
authorial intention has driven us?
