Al Margery cites the Daily Mail bewailing the dumbing down of school
Shakespeare "to capture children's interest."
Here's one solution from Groundling (with his permission) at the Google
"For a Shakespeare Renaissance among the youth, the Bard should be
banned entirely and placed on an Index with criminal penalties
attached... Make him subversive and his works forbidden. How the young
will then ravin down his lines in the dark of night, their flashlights
beaming, their minds illumined!"
