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.
