  1. Antigonus, I don't have to outrun the bear . . . I just have to outrun YOU

  2. For what it is worth, the Fool does not "disappear". Read King Lear's dying words:
    And my poor fool is hang'd! No, no, no life!
    Why should a dog, a horse, a rat, have life,
    And thou no breath at all? Thou'lt come no more,
    Never, never, never, never, never!
    Pray you, undo this button: thank you, sir.
    Do you see this? Look on her, look, her lips,
    Look there, look there!


  3. According to the last speech of the play, Lady Macbeth didn't die from a lack of sleep, but rather, "as 'tis thought, by self and violent hands / Took off her life."

    And what about Eros from 'Antony and Cleopatra'?

  4. What, no mention of Hamlet's Yorick? Alas.
