Subject:    Re: SHAKSPER: Quiet Lears


I thought of another thing about Laughton’s quiet Lear. He said that he discerned that this was the right way to enact Lear through a study of the punctuation in various original editions (I don’t remember which ones) which he assumed, I guess, expressed Shakespeare’s intentions (which may be doubted). If I ever do come upon a reference for this story, I will send.
