(Shakespeare) Porn

Whereas no thinking person can disagree with the right and need to study
anything whatever, including porn and Shakespeare porn, he might well
wonder, granting the too-brief time allotted undergraduate and graduate
studies, whether the formal study of such a subject should be offered as
an option for students who would make better use of their time and
certainly better profit from more traditional courses with greater
intellectual moment in their content.  In any case, before delving into
such exotics as Dr. Burt offers, shouldn't the wise student have a sound
grounding in the sciences and arts that establish their value and
significance?   I don't believe such can be gathered in the brief time
the graduate or undergraduate student is allowed to attend a university.
