Subject: "Hamlet" Questions
Comment:        SHK 16.0075 "Hamlet" Questions

To Terence Hawkes:

Thanks for the explanation; I'm glad you know what Eliot meant.  I hope
you also understand that I was talking about something else:  not
whether an audience recognizes poetry as poetry in the moment of
performance, but simply whether Hamlet could have written swatches of
verse replete with matter, metrically regular and rhetorically apt.  I
think not, and suggested my reasons in SHK 16.0041
http://www.shaksper.net/archives/2005/0040.html and SHK 16.0029
http://www.shaksper.net/archives/2005/0028.html .  Eliot's remark is
interesting for a lot of reasons, but you sent it as if in reply to my
argument, and I don't see the relevance.

Best regards,
-- Scot
