The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.2066 Wednesday, 8 December 2004
Date: Tuesday, 7 Dec 2004 08:48:23 EST
Subject: Greenblatt's Hamlet
the end of the mousetrap, nobody but Hamlet and Horatio know that the
king has been exposed, and the evidence they have at that point is not
conclusive, not even circumstantial, though it is shrewd. And Hamlet
does not ever expose Claudius; he has to persuade Horatio not to act the
antique Roman, and to make certain the story is out after his death.
By the way, who witnesses the last scene?
