(though yes, I do find the climax to Tam Lin isn't as... climaxy... as
DWJ's fast-paced endings.) Actually, having been to a farce this week,
maybe DWJ's endings are quite like that- setup, setup, setup, moving
faster and faster until it's wound up as hard as it can get and
everything has to explode at once. Then maybe one more scene to tidy up
the loose ends and you're out of the theatre with your head buzzing.
