Subject:        Hamlet (Once More)

Ruth Ross writes,

"Responding to Edmund Taft's point about Hamlet's baiting Claudius to
the point where the king acts criminally: sounds like something the
police in NYC do when they want to catch people they consider
criminals."

Yes. good point. Literary historians usually credit Wilkie Collins with
writing the first modern detective stories. Maybe Will should get the
credit.
