To Terence Hawkes:

I find insults to be a great distraction from the quest we should have
for finding depth and meaning in a work of art. This particular kind of
"fun" like a practical joke gives the advantage to the one who pulls out
the chair in order to see someone sprawl on the floor. Never mind the
pain that may result from such an amusement or that the public may lose
a person of some value.

Terence Hawkes writes, "Enough of this sanctimonious snivelling!
Personal quarrels and insults are fun. Discreet dissent, refined
rebuttal? You can get all that in Shakespeare Quarterly."

I recall, way back, some wit published on Hardy's list that if one Bill
Arnold were not real, Hardy would have had to have invented him.
Plupefect :)   Ergo: Hardy had Terence Hawkes, waiting in the wings for
this delicious moment of raw intellects engarde!  And, yes, Monsieur
Hawkes is perfectly right on, as what makes Hardy's board stand apart
from Academe Centrale is that it partakes more of the actors and
groundlings, face to face, in the heat and heart of theatre!  Break a leg!!
