"Why not forget about all the other stuff, the literary, intellectual, religious, political, cultural meanings and significances, and just explain what the poem means? Because all that other stuff is what the poem means. A poem is a human utterance, and a human isn't a simple thing. One label isn't enough to totally pigeonhole you, and one layer of significance isn't enough to do justice to justice to a poem you, or Shakespeare, has written."
-Richard Duerden, literary genius/life enthusiast
