I like the fact that you've written 'differance'.

    Well, that's worth thinking about?  Why Macbeth? And why strike it out and add Lear? Was he considering Justine as Lady Macbeth? And was he thinking of the possibility that Macbeth would murder Duncan? (Who will play Duncan?) That Justine would urge the murder? That the apparently dynamic duo would break apart? 

    Macbeth's paranoia is well-founded! They are out to get him -- and they do. Okay, perhaps Darley is Macbeth in the sense that  he believes Nessim is out to get him. And will.

    Does the differance help here?
  To extend what you have said, Bill, I was reading back from Macbeth Lear and noting the portents, omens, "vertiginous uncertainty," and the "Beware" written in the sand in Greek--all of which I can see as making Macbeth a more obvious choice.  But then what to do with the swerve to Lear?
