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!
