Subject:        Who would a plagiarist be...

What things we have seen writ at the SHAKSPER! Hard words that have been
so heavy and so full of violent flame as if from some from whence they
came had meant to put his lack of humour in a quarto and had resolved to
live a fool the rest of his dull life.* But to return to it would be as
tedious as to wade o'er.** So here's my last words to Alaudidae and
their Fledgling.

A response in style would have been soooo much more fun.

The puzzled would (!) have put Lord Gnome in a search engine

Mr Larque will get even lower marks in his essays if he doesn't learn
the difference between pirating and plagiarism. Mr Young will get low
marks in his if he fails to distinguish between a quote and an
allusion.  So for him only; The clue was in the phrase "partly nicked"
and the choice of substituting the verb "preach" was awfully deliberate.

Don't have the inclination to look back with any regret.! ***

Yours watching the sun and the yardarm,
Graham Hall.

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1714 Down with the Hall

I rarely understand Graham Hall's posts to this list, but I always find
them amusing even when I can't riddle out the meaning.  As with Joyce
and others, though, perhaps only Mr.  Hall knows what he means and his
interpreters therefore perform hazardous duty.

Yours in search of amusement,
Al Magary
