Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0100 Re-reading Hamlet

I can assure Terry Hawkes that presentism does indeed carry all before 
it -- both here in the heartland and every place else. Stephen 
Greenblatt was in Ohio last Tuesday, and he told me that all he knows 
about presentism he owes to Terry. Stephen then read us a very 
presentist essay about <I>King Lear</I>, with an interesting analysis of 
the torturing of Gloucester. Two weeks before Linda Charnes read us an 
equally present essay on <I>Othello</I>with regard to contingency and 
the abrogation of the law. In addition, Hugh Grady was the keynote 
lecturer in our mini-series on presentism -- the Ropes Lectures at the 
University of Cincinnati for 2006. Although invited, President Bush did 
not attend.
