Richard Kennedy writes, "Hamlet, of course, is a perfect anagram for 
Amleth."

This is an anagram?

Joseph Egert advises that I "unleash Ariel."  You're probably right that 
I'm too tied to worrying about what's likely, to weighing evidence and 
testing logic, and not open enough to the bliss of freeplay.

SHAKSPER apparently has room for all sorts of temperaments and 
approaches, from those exposing a myriad of possibilities, however 
unlikely many of them are; to those tracking down evidence and trying to 
focus on the most relevant and fecund among the possibilities; to those 
certain they've found the one true reading (sometimes, in the view of 
many, stretching evidence and logic to or beyond the breaking point); to 
those who specialize in mocking and mystifying.  I happily support the 
motto "Let a thousand flowers bloom."  But we don't all have to be the 
same kind of flower.

Thanks for prompting me to reflect on my own habitual approach.  I'll 
think really hard about trying to loosen up a bit.

P.S.: Before unleashing Ariel, acknowledging Caliban as mine, drowning 
my book, and turning every third thought to death, I thought I'd note 
that, in my previous posting, besides SEER, I also forgot to mention 
about 40 other anagrammatic revelations within Joseph's name, including 
STOP and GET ROPE.  I find that many of the anagrams within my own name 
overlap with Joseph's, but among the more unsettling of those that do 
not are BORE, UURONG (that's with a double u), BE, and GONE.  It appears 
that whoever named me was trying to tell me something.
