Comments about Eli Siegel
Look at Hamlet
What Hamlet’s father said to him,
In Hamlet’s mind grew rather dim.
The lesson is: We can’t obey
Unless our mind is just one way.
Self-reproof Isn’t Everything
The prince soliloquizes;
His indignation rises.
And Hamlet stands reproved.
But Hamlet hasn’t moved.
All about Lady Macbeth
Lady Macbeth, too ambitious,
Caused her husband to be vicious.
Macbeth heeding her commands,
Made his lady wash her hands.
Romeo and Juliet
Is about a family net.
Love fares sadly by a ...
Trees standing in rain;
Footfalls on the pavement, feet crushing leaves;
A little girl leaving her house;
The moon, barely to be seen, shining dully in the gray sky;
A cry from somewhere;
A man scolding his wife, and being heard outside;
A man going into a library;
A shout from somewhere.
'Chicken I want,' says someone near.
