Hmm - 'disenchanted' is a wonderfully weaselly term in this context -
but, to bring this back to Shakespeare, doesn't Lear have something to
say about what the rich should do with their 'superflux'?

No problem with abundance, Larry, only with excess, inequality and
injustice.  Check out the World Trade negotiations! (And, yes, as a
European, I hang my head in shame at our treatment of the developing
world).

What has all this to do with Tillyard, or with Shakespeare? Surely the
time has come to continue this 'strand' of the discussion privately.

Cheers,
