Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1480 Suicide

I am surprised that no one so far has mentioned Horatio's attempt to
drain the dregs of the poisoned cup at the end of Hamlet, forestalled by
Hamlet's wrestling it away -- "Give me the cup.  Let go!" -- and then
charging him with a post mortem task he could hardly refuse.
