“The incorrigibly playful Stoppard has never been more serious than in this most playful of his works [Dogg’s Hamlet and Cahoot’s Macbeth]. Like George Orwell, Stoppard knows that language and liberty are intertwined: when language is perverted, corrupted or forcibly repressed, so is liberty.”Newsweek
