Comment: RE: SHK 16.1756 Clocks and Bells
I realize this discussion might be more than a little dull to most
members of the list, but in the hope that it doesn't seem entirely
irrelevant, could I ask Michael Egan to respond properly to my
arguments? He might consider my objections to his theories about the
staging of _1 R2_/_Woodstock_ "obvious," but he is mistaken, I think, in
his belief that he has already answered them on his website.
In any case, I'd be interested to hear his response to the broader
implications of the points I made apropos his specific propositions; in
particular I'd like to find out if he has reconsidered his understanding
of _Macbeth_ as a play written for a particular performance venue.
Another protracted discussion of _1 R2_/_Woodstock_ might indeed not be
welcome here, but I take it that the larger issue under debate in this
thread is of considerable theatre historical significance and hence
worthy of further discussion.
Apologies to Hardy if I'm altogether wrong --
[Editor's Note: I believe that this thread is approaching its end and
would appreciate it if anyone with anything further to say on the
subject would do so before I close it down.]
