Good questions, Ed. What do you do with such students? Maybe interrogate the
universality of such terms as "beauty" and their applicability to Shakespeare. That's
what's shaken up the canon (albeit not enough) in recent years. And I was glad to see
that you brought up students because, as I've read through some of these posts, I've
been reminded of all those really bad teachers I've met who maintain that the "problem"
is with their students and not with their teaching methods. I'm having trouble seeing
that this discussion, though couched in slightly different terms, is much different.
