-- Philip Weller, November 13, 1941 - February 1, 2021
Dr. Weller, an Eastern Washington University professor of English and Shakespearean scholar for more than 50 years.

Note to Hamlet, 5.2.387: "And call the noblest to the audience"

Act 5, Scene 2, line 387
Fortinbras probably wants to make sure that the story Horatio will tell is heard by the most influential people; he's about to seize the throne of Denmark and wouldn't want anyone to think he is responsible for the heap of dead bodies.
