Dear All,

Surely the point about this digression from valuable scholarly
discussion is that Shakespeare was an artist - a poet and a playwright
(and a successful and full blooded capitalist) while Marx was an ailing
German political theorist who indirectly caused the death of millions
(not to be crude let's name names - Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Kim Jong etc not
to mention various other not so illustrious imitators and pseudo
philosophical French partisans of the late twentieth century).

Give me poetry and a nice house in Stratford any day.

Best,
Marcus Rabelanyday Dahl
