" 'Only a novel' ... in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humor are conveyed to the world in the best chosen language."
-- Jane Austen. Northanger Abbey.

I think this disturbs me ...
But, then again, Shakespeare for the masses?
No, no. I'm definitely disturbed. (Not so disturbed that this will keep me up at night. Just disturbed enough to tell you about it.)
