A Player's Hide Mar 17, 2005
"A tiger's heart wrapped in a woman's hide," screeches the Duke of York just before Queen Margaret is to chop off his head. "A tiger's heart wrapped in a player's hide," hissed a jealous Robert Greene just before he died, in the first published reference to Shakespeare (1592). Anthony Burgess (in Dead Man in Deptford) surmises that Christopher Marlowe actually wrote the line. Either way, the line well captures the spirit of Shakespeare's early potboiler, here given voice that deep-throated Calliope, that youngest of the nine Muses, might not extol, but we are not likely to be regaled by too many other fully dramatized productions of this play. Listen. You could do worse.
