Well, Terence, perhaps a good Welsh correction can teach us all about
the condition of good English. Peter Groves' observation that Tennyson
admired Cymbeline is certainly true but T was one of many Victorian fans
of the play, generally, and Imogen, especially. Personally, I always
thought it because the titillation when she removes those defenses worn
over her heart -- bared breast! and devant les domestiques!
