The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 17.0994 Thursday, 9 November 2006
Date: Wednesday, 8 Nov 2006 18:32:10 +1300
Subject: Two Howlers
From the midst of examinations, I offer these, one a strange typo, one
a lovely misreading:
1) At the end of Hamlet, Horatio says he will tell the story again:
"So shall you hear
Of carnal, bloody and unnatural pets."
2) [from an answer on Richard 3]
"Buckingham proposes that the Prince be brought from Ludlow on a little
train. Rivers asks why it must be a small train. Buckingham says that a
large one might renew the civil war..."
A really USEFUL engine, no doubt.
