>Tom Pendleton's clues are impressively cryptic. I've managed three (I
>think), but the other five have foxed me for the moment.
> The Architect's Relict
>Not sure about this but could it be the widow Vitravio (from Vitruvius?)
>- Romeo and Juliet?
> Mr. Death (or maybe Mr. World)
>Monsieur Lamord/Lamond - Hamlet
> The Obstetrical Ms. Otis Skinner
>Cornelia the midwife - Titus Andronicus
Bravo Jim Doyle; you're three for three. The other five are from five
different tragedies, now excluding Titus, Romeo, and Hamlet. Riverside
has VitrUvio rather than VitrAvio.
