Subject: Coleridge and the Golden Ear Test
Too bad S. T. Coleridge isn't around to try out the Golden Ear Test. He
claimed, in a lecture, that Shakespeare's style "had also that felicity,
that not a sentence could be read without its being discovered if it
were Shakespearian" (Bate, *Romantics on Shakespeare*, p. 131).
