Subject: 16.1338 Large Powerful Burbage?
Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1338 Large Powerful Burbage?

Another possibility:  The great actor, at the beginning of the play,
fresh in power and keen to go on, could seem like a youth of sixteen
---- but after playing the enormous role for two hours, he'd have aged a
double handful of years.
