I too have been skipping these postings; however, I'm far from critical
of Hardy's restraint in closing down the theme.  All in all, I consider
him better advised in sinning in the direction of inclusion rather than
exclusion.  After all, we--including me--who get tired of it, don't have
to read it.  That's why God created delete.

D Bloom writes, "Readers of this list need to know that all the remarks
on Hamlet are written by Hardy's evil twin, Titus Andronicus Cook, who
suffers from multiple personality as well as ill-nature and
ill-information. We have all been trying to help Hardy through this very
trying period in his life in hopes that T. A. will go back to the
philosophy of Immanuel Kant in which he holds a doctorate from the
University of Wittenberg."

OK: as we say in rebel country here in the Deep South, Praise The Lord!
At least someone understands Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Intellect!
I recall a professor of English from Boston College decades ago who
stood up at the Nth hour of a ponderously long and boring faculty
meeting and proclaimed, looking askance at his watch, "Well, are we
going to fish or cut bait forever?"  Personally, if we cut bait we are
still here in the Land of Intellect, with the delete button available to
all [one needs one in a faculty meeting!] and if one fishes, I guess we
head for the hills and the head of the stream for that cool pool and the
shadows of fishes on the river bottom.  I've been deleting everything
but Hamlet-related.  How strange?  Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn
about anything but Hamlet!  The rest bores me to tears.

Count me in, Fran. In particular, I can't find anything more pointless
in a forum about drama than reading about _characters in plays_ (and
whatever pertains to them) being discussed as if they were the poster's
uncle, dentist, or some other presumably living creature--and these are
full of that. But who's reading them anymore? The moment I see the
heading, 'next' goes the mouse.

 >Quite so Fran Teague.  More matter with less art (2.2.97).

I swear, they use no art at all.

By the by, can we chip in and get Bill Arnold a copy of "Eats, Shoots
and Leaves"?
