..a photo of Audre Lorde, a black female writer.

The English (Literature) Department voted to relocate and replace the portrait a few years ago in order to represent a more diverse range of writers.
This replacement didnt officially happen, so the students removed it on their own.

I think a black bulldyke would be the iconic Jungian shadow to a white, uptight, and outta-sight playwright.

Yes, yes, yes! These students have found their supreme leader. Why read the works of the greatest writer of all time when you can read, or even better, kind of look at pictures from one of the greatest dumb asses of all time.

You know things are bad when the greatest threat to intelligence are your institutions of higher learning. They have become the head cheerleaders in the rush to idiocracy.

To Shakespeare lovers everywhere, as well as to those who are encountering him for the first time: know that a great mystery lies before you. How could William “Shakspere” of Stratford have been the author, William Shakespeare, and leave no definitive evidence of it that dates from his lifetime? And why is there an enormous gulf between the alleged author's life and the contents of his works?

In the annals of world literature, William Shakespeare is an icon of towering greatness. But who was he? The following are among the many outstanding writers, thinkers, actors, directors and statesmen of the past who have expressed doubt that Mr. “Shakspere” wrote the works of William Shakespeare:


Mark Twain
Henry James
Walt Whitman
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sir George Greenwood

Orson Welles
Tyrone Guthrie
Charlie Chaplin
Sir John Gielgud
Hugh Trevor-Roper

William James
Sigmund Freud
Clifton Fadiman
John Galsworthy
Mortimer J. Adler

Paul H. Nitze
Lord Palmerston
William Y. Elliott
Harry A. Blackmun
Lewis F. Powell, Jr.

Kinda nice to see the the literature department stick it to so called applied science of positive psychology. We really do deserve our taxpayer dollars back for funding Seligman's Christmas parties.
