Comment: RE: SHK 15.1527 Timon of Athens
I didn't reply to Bob's first post, assuming that a flood of passionate
refutations would render mine superfluous. But I'm astonished at the
failure to defend the poetry in <Timon>, something explicitly attacked
by Bob: with Johnson I would have to say, 'if this be not poetry, where
is poetry to be found?' If I didn't know better I would assume that Bob
equated poetry with the lyricism of "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
