Comment:        Re: SHK 11.2117 Re: Far-fetched Stage Directions

The exact stage direction in The Atheist's Tragedy (at 5.2.235,
following the line 'You shall see / How easily I can put you out of pain
. . . Oh!') is: 'As he raises up the axe strikes out his own brains.
Staggers off the scaffold.'  As well he might.
