Dear Colleagues:

I would pose two candidates for the list of ten best, although as I
think about even the possibility of such a list being truly
representative, I shudder. But for what it's worth: 1) the old chestnut,
Frye's "The Argument of Comedy"; and 2) Robert G. Hunter's essay on
Hamlet in Shakespeare & The Mystery of God's Judgment (Georgia, 1976).

Regards to all,
Michael Shurgot
