Comment: Re: SHK 14.1890 doting wenches in Julius Caesar
Not really. It points more to Shakespeare's acknowledgment of the power
of political spin and the role of personality over substance in public
power positions. It also must be filtered through the personality of
Casca in the scene who is surely, with Jaques, one of the most sardonic
characters in all of Shakespeare's plays.
