Try this:
1.  telnet gopher.upenn.edu
2.  From the resulting menu, choose number 3 (Gopher servers at Penn).
    i.e., move your cursor to number 3, and press the enter/return key on
    your computer keyboard.
3.  From that menu, choose number 1 (center for computer analysis of texts)
4.  From that menu, choose number 1 (search all CCAT menus using
    jughead).  Once you press the return key, you should get a prompt that
    asks you for "Words to search for"; at that point, type shakespeare.
