For Tunis Romein:

A delightful "3-way" scene might be the exchange between Claudius and Laertes
up to the first lines of Gertrude's report of Ophelia drowning.  Another might
be the dialogue between Hamlet and Horatio leading up to the entry of the court
for the climactic swordplay.

I've printed facsimiles of juicy chunks in "'Well-sayd olde Mole': Burying
Three _Hamlet_s in Modern Editions," in Georgianna Ziegler, ed., SHAKESPEARE
STUDY TODAY (New York, AMS, 1986), 37-70.  But you might rather use full-page
copies instead.

If anyone wants 'em, I have some parallel text handouts for Lear, Romeo and
Juliet, Hamlet, and everyone's FAVORITES, Henry VI two and three. I'm alwys
glad to circulate them as widely as possible.  Were I a master of technology,
these images would live in the web. Alas, my way of constructing a web site is
to invite arachnidae into dark corners.
