Subject:   OT: Mimetic Reconstruction

This is not directly related to Shakespeare studies, but it might be of 
interest to narrative geeks. One of the original scripts for _Hamlet_ is 
supposed by some to be a reconstruction by memory of a minor actor.

Here we have _Star Wars_, the original trilogy, retold by someone who 
has never watched it. She has seen "bits and pieces" and otherwise 
picked up the story just through those kinds of cultural contagion that 
narratives have.

--It's a joke video, but I think it's pretty interesting.
