Comment: 	RE: SHK 18.0524 Re: WashPost: Ourselves in Shakespeare

Perhaps Joe Egert can tell us what a 'fact' is, and how we might 
separate it from a 'value' or even from ideology! Even F.R.Leavis had 
sufficient theoretical savvy to assert that 'there is a value implicit 
in the realising'. The question is: WHAT do we 'realise' and HOW? 
Hawkes' claim - and it's one that disciples of the independent authority 
of the 'text' need to ponder very carefully, and in the full knowledge 
of the empirical evidence that the texts as we have them furnish for us 
- is that the act of 'making sense' is something that we perform as 
readers and spectators.

Cheers,
John Drakakis
