Subject:        Too too solid flesh

Dan Smith writes about [...]having a Claudius of similar physique to
Hamlet [...]

It's certainly a trick within Shakespeare's sly wit of matching
available flesh to created parts.

Mr Beale might be said by some to shape up to Burbage so we need to seek
their combined physique from a Company player circa 1603. I'm bogged
down by elimination to three possibilities but I shall avoid naming them
for fear of ridicule. Taylor and Lowine might be worth a ten bob punt in
later years with Ecclestone as an outside gamble for playing Leartes. A
pound says someone has a better idea.

Best Wishes,
Graham Hall
