in consequence of the missive, GR: The big thing that bugs me about the Gertrude/Hamlet scene, penned by Laraine
Yes, and she's obviously been harboring some sort of guilt, though very sublimated, from the beginning - her complaints to Hamlet about his moping and wearing of black smack of the alcoholic who's unhappy that others won't drink with him, the partier who reviles the party-pooper. If it were purely concern for him it would be more of the Darling-are-you-okay,-can-I-do-anything-to-make-you-feel-better? variety, rather than the What's-the-matter-with-you,-quitcher-moping-yer-bringing-us-all-down variety it is.
