Subject:      Re: SBReview_7: The New Kittredge Shakespeare: Julius Caesar

You've probably heard this Kittredge story, as it seems to have been passed 
down, like family folklore, through generations of students. I myself heard 
it from a Kittredge grand-student, one whose own adviser had studied with 
Kittredge.

It seems that at some reception a faculty wife or patron of the arts came 
twittering up to Mr Kittredge at a reception, saying "Oh, Mr. Kittredge, 
what a shame that you never earned your doctorate. It isn't too late for you 
now, is it?"

Mr. K, urbane and polite, answered: "But, madam, who would examine me?"

Even the quoted snippets from the review are a reminder that literary 
scholarship can also be clear, engaging writing. I look forward to these new 
editions.
