Shakespeare paper of doom

Here’s what I encounter during finals week:

“If we rule out clairvoyance, it is a mystery irretrievably beyond the plucking out. And the tacit corollary, as we said, seems to be that other minds than Ham- let’s, being equally unique and invisible, are equally enigmatic; and all attempts to penetrate them equally reduced to a futile indirection.”

-pages and pages of this sort of stuff that I have to read and reread at least 5 times before I understand it, and another 4 times before I figure out where to plug it into my paper. Consequently there will be no Secret Saturday today. You may thank Hamlet for that.
