Comment: Re: SHK 20.0018 Heroes
May I call attention to what could be a troublesome mistake in my
comment? It occurs in the second line of the repeated paragraph below.
It writes the word "love" for what should be "lose." Horatio warns
Hamlet that he will "lose" his wager in the duel, not "love" it, which
is senseless. The entire paragraph reads as follows:
For example, Horatio recognizes that the dueling match is a trap
and he tries to warn Hamlet, saying, "My Lord, you will love that
wager." And when Hamlet has misgivings about participating in the
duel match, Horatio advises that he say that he is ill. Despite
this, Prince Hamlet overrules him in this and everything else. Try
and tell a determined prince a thing or two!
