"From what you write, it suggests that other materials may be found that
would put whole plays in question: knowing how crucial one word can make
or break the substantial meaning of a sentence, a sentence of an act, an
act of a play itself?"
Can this be true? I'm inclined to believe that this way madness lies.
I would prefer to think that we use the weight of a whole play to
interpret the significance of a single word, not the other way around.
