Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century
Sometimes, I have to directly quote from a work just to emphasis how completely ridiculous the text is. In this particular case, I've read the quoted dialog a hundred times and I still don't know what half of it means. Hell, I've even read the passage transcribed into plain modern English, and it's still partially inscrutable. Granted, he is the Fool, but still. I'm probably just being an idiot, appearing for all the world that I somehow stole my English degree when no one was looking. In any event, I have no trouble understanding most of Shakespeare's writing, but sometimes his style is just a bridge too far.
