Comment: SHK 15.1019 Coriolanus 4.5
"I'm not sure that Aufidius has abjured femininity; perhaps he has
become feminine: 'cut i' th' middle.'"
I like this suggestion. It made me wince a bit, though...
I am flattered by the implication (and pleased that Jack Heller found
some of what I had to say stimulating), but I am merely on the brink of
(finally) getting that elusive PhD, and now gainfully employed outside
"... gives source references for the material given above the passage
quoted I've quoted (Leggatt, Kernan, and others). Please let us know if
the remainder of your posting, on the servingmen, is your own because I
would like to read further on them. I am most grateful."
As far as one can ever make a claim on ideas, the rest, without
references, is my own. Thinking back, I don't seem to recall any decent
criticism on the Servingmen - but I wouldn't say my reading was
exhaustive by any means.
