Comment:        SHK 15.0266 "Would Shakespeare Get Into Swarthmore?"

Never mind Swarthmore. A famous verse of the 1920s has Shakespeare
sitting an examination for a British Civil Serice post:

The English paper for the year
Had several questions on 'King Lear'
Which Shakespeare answered very badly
Because he hadn't read his Bradley.

T. Hawkes
