Regarding F. Amit's reply, I'm sorry but I do not see what the
discussion of Noah's Biblical sons has to do with the MoV discussion
that others are conducting.

I applaud Thomas Larque's thorough exigesis of the arguments put forth
in Amit's website; I encourage Amit to address Larque's comments via
clear textual citations of Shakespeare's actual words, rather than by
convoluted arguments about purported Hebrew coding-- coding which
virtually  no one in Shakespeare's time would have been equipped to
decipher.

However, I think perhaps the time has come to pull the plug on this
discussion, and add Shakespeare's use of Hebrew code cyphers to the "We
aren't talking about that in this list" category, Hardy.

How could Shakespeare, who did not overlook anything, choose a name like
"Hamlet" where "Gimlet" would have been more appropriate?
Cheers,

Markus Marti(ni), son of Noah.

Comment:        SHK 12.1414 Re: Tragic Hero

May I ask what I confess seems a naive question: is there a major
Shakespearean tragic hero or heroine that Ms Amit does not find derived
from the annals of Jewish cultural history, either currently or in some
gnomic clue from the past? Othello, Portia seem an auspicious start.

Am I wrong in recalling that Hardy pulled the plug on Ms Amit's last
long day's journey into night?
