Comment: Re: SHK 16.1752 Growth of Shakespeare's Imagery
For Tom Bishop,
I don't yet have any kind of answer to your most compelling, and
beautifully articulated question. I merely wanted to express my
gratitude for receiving such an immediately provocative query, and to
say that you seem to possess the kind of literary mind that I'm always
looking for, and too seldom find.
Not the slightest whiff of the career professional here, or the
complacent Cultural Studies magistrate either.

I do a lot of play directing, but I have not yet dared to do
Shakespeare, who is alas almost never (in my mainly North American
experience) as gripping, textured, and visceral in actual performance as
he invariably is on the page. We hear the calls that you speak of in the
act of encountering them in the private reading act. How I WISH I could
make those calls audible and available to a theatre audience.
