Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.0747 Hamlet: The Actors Cut - Pitlochry

There's a lot of speculation about what Q1 of Hamlet may be. Whatever it 
is, it's probably not what you're looking for. Unless you want your 
students to go through life thinking Hamlet's third-act soliloquy goes 
like this: "To be, or not to be, I there's the point, To Die, to sleepe, 
is that all? I all: No, to sleepe, to dreame, I mary there it goes, For 
in that dreame of death, when wee awake, And borne before an euerlasting 
Iudge, From whence no passenger euer retur'nd, The vndiscouered country, 
at whose sight The happy smile, and the accursed damn'd."

My advice: teach Macbeth.

Alan H.
