  1. Thank you for reminding me of this! I remember reading about it in high school as I prepared to play the part of Ms. Sullivan in a play. Rubbish never was exposed as eloquently as by Mr Clemens.


    1. He really managed to hit the nail on the head, didn’t he? It’s a shame so little of his writing is widely known. Not that I’m familiar with all that much of it–which could be a sign I should start reading.
