Comment:        Re: SHK 12.0517 Re: Poets

Stephanie Hughes offers a "few Shakespearean thoughts on scholarship".
I offer a few more:

Thou hast most traitorously
corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting a
grammar school; and whereas, before, our forefathers
had no other books but the score and the tally, thou
hast caused printing to be used, and, contrary to
the king, his crown and dignity, thou hast built a
paper-mill. It will be proved to thy face that thou
hast men about thee that usually talk of a noun and
a verb, and such abominable words as no Christian
ear can endure to hear (2H6 4.7)

Yours in the spirit of ignorance,
Se
