Haha, thanks Dr Grasshopper – this really made me laugh! (I had to study that book in Italian in third year uni, and I remember that chapter DISTINCTLY (I think it will forever be ingrained in my mind).) The article may claim it’s a juvenile pastiche, but I love it! 😀
Excellent and amusing. It also reminded me of a lit-geek question I’ve been meaning to ask.
Hamlet’s father is supposedly murdered with poison that’s poured into his ear by the father’s brother. (Ah, siblings, as I believe you’ve commented!)
Is is possible to poison someone in this way? I can imagine that a really caustic substance might do the job–actually, I’d rather not imagine that too vividly. Is there any less violent poison that could be used?
I do assure you that this query is strictly fictional in purpose.
