Sure.  Grind up a few pages of OF GRAMMATOLOGY, mix with herbs gathered under
the lecterns at MLA sessions, dilute in the limpid waters of textual
collations, and feed to the victim.  Wake-up time depends on the page numbers,
the numbers attending the MLA session, and the total number of texts being
collated.
 
        Next question, please.

Yes: and the Countess of Bedford is always referred to as Lucy Harington,
not Lucy Russell, ie by her father's name not her husband's.

I've been away for a few days so this is a very late response,
but Roy Flannagan does raise an interesting point:  why is the verse
typically given by Shakespeare to his romantic (good?) characters such
bad stuff?  Is the poetry given to the baddies always good or is it bad
too?  And why is some of the "verse" given to prophetic characters (e.g.,
Fool in +Lear+) frequently incomprehensible?
 
Just asking.
