Stephanie Hughes concludes that 'Shakespeare is the magnificent doorway
to the modern English speaking culture, and through it, to the rest of
the great cultures of the world, past and present.'  Eh?  My impression
is that the bearers of 'modern English speaking culture' have not
infrequently tried their best to stamp out some of the great cultures of
the world, past and present. And far from acting as a magnificent
doorway to them, Shakespeare has often been employed as a massive
barrier against them.
