Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1413 What Happens in "Hamlet"

Jim Blackie writes, "I'm the biggest Wilson fanatic, currently on a 
binge Wilson-thon of all his writings...But without that book, I would 
never have been made aware of...."

Well then, you ought to read Bernard Grebanier's The Heart of Hamlet 
which covers Hamlet the play and the character like a warm and fuzzy 
bear rug.  Along the way, Grebanier shows the strengths and weaknesses 
in Wilson's thesis.  I believe when you are done, you will side more 
with Grebanier and less with Wilson on the play and character.
