Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0824 Horatio and Akunin's _Hamlet_

In an essay in the collection "Shakespeare and the New Europe" (ed. Mick 
Hattaway et al, 1995) there is a brief discussion of a Romanian 
production in which Horatio is a tool of Claudius and sets up a fake 
ghost with the intention of trying to trap Hamlet. Sounds intriguingly 
like the Akunin version.
