Subject: Hermit Dress
In the stage direction that opens 4.3 of Marston's *The Malcontent,* we
Enter MALEVOE, and PIETRO disguised like an hermit.
Does anyone know what this disguise might look like? Dessen and
Thompson's superb *Dictionary* has a helpful entry on disguises and
mentions this s.d., but does not go into detail about what might signal
that Pietro looks like a hermit.
Hesitating to ask because I had to write a dozen off-list thank you
notes last time,
