Yes, you might have caught my prev thread about "Shadow of the Vampire"
starring John Malkovich and Willem Defoe on this subj. I hypothesized
that the Rasputin story was merely a Russian translation of Hamlet, and
that Murtenauer, drank in his German translation thus.

Would you copy this to me off line?

I don't believe the info is public. A correspondent directed me to
material re alienation and exile in the sonnets, and I abstracted this
to my theory about the role of post-letters in alienation, and I used
this to develop my theory of the cycles of reply in which context I
explain the belatedness of Hamlet.
I hope that makes sense. I can't stop for the OED today: I press too
hard upon the edge.
