Subject: Shakespeare - A runner-up?
Comment:        SHK 14.1711 Shakespeare - A runner-up?

The article in "The Hindu" from which Chris Jacobs quotes, e.g.

"More than all the triumphs of science and technology, and the glories
of art and music, Shakespeare's poetry alone, with its great soliloquies
packed with metaphors, similes, and every known figure of speech, (that
reflects his flashes of genius and leaps of fantastic imagination), can
be and should be regarded as the topmost achievement of man, on this
planet, the fulfillment of long centuries of human civilisation and
culture!"

has been subjected to rigorous analysis by our experts here. Their
conclusions suggest that its real author is either Coleridge on a bad
day, or Grebanier on a good one.
