Yorick's lockjaw

From Mr Peter Forster

Sir: Further to David Lister's article of 1 March ("Alas, poor Yorkick, I'll play his skull") and subesequent correspondence (Letters, 3 March), I once saw a production of Hamlet in which Yorick had taken the precaution of being buried with his skull and mandible secured together by a pair of brass hooks.

Yours faithfully,


London, N4
