Subject: 16.0087 Hamlet Questions
Comment:        Re: SHK 16.0087 Hamlet Questions

Terence Hawkes writes, "I'd have thought this makes it reasonably clear
that Eliot's focus is on the audience's response to and perception of
"Hamlet" in performance."

Indeed, methinks TH is right on.  I noticed the same thing when I saw
Baz Luhrman's *Romeo and Juliet* as the same thing happened to me, as
the language of Shakespeare overwhelms the viewer and the viewer becomes
ONE with the artistry of the production.
