Frank, your point is well taken. My apologies if I have adopted the
wrong approach. Regarding "the meaning of Hamlet," I will try (to some
extent) to rectify the situation by posting up excerpts from the book,
and perhaps an article or two. Although I cannot post all the material
up (it is too long), these should provide any interested reader with
enough information on the key points without having to read the book,
and also without having to clutter up the list with long posts.

I will probably place these articles on my own website (which is readily
accessible) so that our Editor can be spared the additional work of
formatting them. This might take me a little time, though, as I only
know how to prepare html documents "manually."

I believe, however, that a discussion on this forum is, nonetheless,
beneficial as a sounding board for different opinions, and I am grateful
that such an opportunity is available. The benefit of having such a
discussion, I sincerely hope, will become self-evident in time.

Regards,
Kenneth Chan

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

I would like to thank Frank Whigham, a member of the SHAKSPER Advisory
Board, for his comments.

The Advisory Board <http://www.shaksper.net/board.html> has, I believe,
wisely advised me in the past of the wisdom of not imposing inflexible
guidelines on the list, instead encouraging me to follow my best
instincts and generously offering advice when I request it.

I do not want to micromanage this list, putting myself in the position
of arbitrator for all posts of what is and is not acceptable. This does
not mean that I do not reject submissions or ask members to reconsider;
I do. My preference is, however, for member moderation. I have pleaded
for years for self-moderation, "counting to ten" as it were. Of course,
what is one person's self-moderation is another's outline of line
posting. So I also ask members to speak up when they feel that
submissions are not appropriate for an inclusive, academic conference.

I receive no institutional or outside support, except from Eric Luhrs,
for SHAKSPER. Much of the time (and it does take a great deal of time),
this list is fun for me. Sometimes, it is a chore. But so is life.

Hardy M. Cook
