the unsleeping brain assent to such entertainment? Strenuous physically workout is pleasing. may we, once we reply to a tragedy, be exercise our feelings, getting ready for actual grief and worry? King Lear really destroys an anticipated majestic series. could the excitement of tragedy have extra to do with
possible fact than with 'splendid evasion'?
