How delicious!

When I taught the soph survey, I asked my students to contemplate the Hallmark Cards Presentation: "Sir Gawain's Very Special Christmas."  Then when we read "Lear," I noted its distinctly pre/non Christian setting and when it was first performed ... another Halmark Presentation?

With thanks for everyone on this list [including lurkers!].
