The Bard goes to Madison Avenue

I concur with T. S. Eliot's view that Shakespeare and Dante divide the world between them (there being no third), although I also agree with Matthew Pearl's corollary that Dante's half is growing larger each year. But this post today is all about Shakespeare, who, according to at least one wit, should be invoked by advertisers to sell products. His view, which I think is a wonderful idea, appears in today's Jewish World Review. Read this, and be amused. (I wish my high-school English teacher, the much-loved Nell Thomas, could see this!)
