Well done, but the chronology is backwards.

Well done, but the chronology is backwards.Chronology on Facebook is from the bottom up like a blog. It's been 30 plus years since I read it so I don't know whether it's correct or not.

I'm all too familiar with Facebook, thank you. :o The bottom-up chronology of Facebook would be precisely the point of my minor criticism; for great justice, or at least truthiness, the Hamlet page should have had the most recent items at the top. It didn't.

Which suggests to me an editorial decision in favour of readability over verisimilitude. I can live with that, even endorse it - but it would be a struggle to let it pass unremarked. :D

The Kenneth Branagh version of Hamlet was on TV late last night. What an amazing cast: Branagh, Jacobi, Lemmon, Heston, not to mention Winslet and Christie.

Given the Facebook 'synopsis' I still had to laugh, even during the Ophelia's drowning scene. "Flowers flowers flowers flowers. Oh look, a river."
