Subject: 	Alms for Oblivion

Charles Weinstein claims that I must know the lines from Coriolanus as 
he does. Nevertheless, the speech he quotes repeats a strange and 
crucial error which he ignores.  It replaces a wholly acceptable First 
Folio reading with an anodyne emendation from the Third Folio.  It 
proposes 'Flutter'd'  as a replacement for 'Flatter'd'. This is a moment 
of containment and enlistment which helps to recruit the play to a 
conservative agenda.  I wince alone.

T. Hawkes
