Adding briefly to the Agatha Christie list are "By the Pricking of My 
Thumbs" and "Taken at the Flood," while Michael Innes  -- actually a 
bona fide literary scholar and Oxford don, the late J.I.M. Stewart, who 
wrote a book of Shakespeare criticism and among his mysteries 
contributed "[The] Long Farewell" and, as a stretch of sorts "Hamlet, 
Revenge" which deals largely and amusingly with a highly academic troupe 
planning to perform Hamlet and get it "right" as of the then current (c. 
1939) views.  But I'm not sure that any of this contributes much in the 
way of popularizing Shakespearean quotations.  As Innes was a Brit, his 
influence is likely to have been greater on his home turf.

Mystified as ever,
Tony

I've been told that starting sometime in the 20th century a common 
response to the sound of a student breaking wind in a British public 
school classroom was 'O, speak again, bright angel!' Does anyone know if 
this enjoyable story is true?

Cheers,
