Comment:        Re: SHK 12.0992 Time in Hamlet

How do you fit the gravedigger's reference to "thirty years since...."
If Hamlet is a young man before the pirates take him, are we to assume
he spent 8 or more years with them? Or was he one of the oldest students
at Wittenberg U? Please enlighten. HR Greenberg MD ENDIT
