I have to apologize for a typo; it's not 'Grey', but 'Greg' -- W.W.
Greg, that is, who disagreed with Dover Wilson's imaginative idea that
Claudius and Gertrude were too distracted to notice the dumb show. I'm
looking for the reference, which I remember I had somewhere, but I
haven't found it, yet. I shall pass it on as soon as I locate it.
