Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0075 Re-reading Hamlet

Plays never speak for themselves. If we humans don't read and/or act the 
plays, they are indeed speechless. They don't tell us what they mean. 
And we must of necessity read plays in the present -- with all our 
present preoccupations. I find it hard to think about Shakespeare's 
Henry V without thinking about our Imperial President.
