Comment: RE: SHK 17.0076 Deceitful Plays
Larry Weiss' keen observation of Helena's affecting a sorrow for a dead
father may cast an Oedipal shadow over Hamlet's own adulation of the
late king. Does Hamlet protest too much? Does he too harbor festering
resentment, though partly unconscious, against his revenant task master?
