Great article!  For my students, many of whom need to know why they 
need to know something before they will learn it (especially when they 
see it as  far outside their personal frames of reference, the way many 
of them see  Shakespeare), this will be required reading..........

Or, as Nigel Cliff concludes his book "The Shakespeare Riots": 
"Shakespeare had served his purpose, but it was a purpose no other 
storyteller had ever served. Once a voice carried a people across a 
continent and helped forge a brave new world. No other writer has been 
so powerful, and none will ever be again." Stirring words even out of 
context; inspiring when you read the whole book. We fire off paper 
bullets at one another over this and other web lists, but in America in 
1849, they threw bricks and shot each other over Shakespeare. Amazing.
