What a fellow you are, Stephen. Any sailor can tell a great deal from the way another sailor sets his jib, or goes about, or flashes out his stuns’ls, just as you could tell a great deal about a doctor from the way he whipped off a leg.’

‘Always this whipping off of a leg. It is my belief that for you people the whole noble art of medicine is summed up in the whipping off of a leg.

okay but since theatre was not taken nearly as seriously in elizabethan england as it is today imagine if fans of shakespeare had rocky horror-style call lines for his plays

I hope everyone screamed “you’re an ass” every time Bottom opened his mouth.

oh but can you imagine Dogberry after he gets called an ass, keeps turning to the audience and they shout back reassuringly that they totally remember that he is an ass even though it wasn’t written down

they make reassuring donkey noises at him. ;)

also, every time a character named Antonio appears, they have to shout “GAAAAAY”, or whatever the rough equivalent is back then. 

oh oh! and when the storm happens in lear everyone has to cover their heads.

Why am I reading this book?

Victor Hugo writes in a style like Neal Stephenson’s - always a new side note that in some way pertains to the larger story.

Our protagonist just ate a meal whose main dish was soup (“made with water, oil, bread, and salt”), some six months after Napoleon left Elba. There was a notable conversation with a man who had been part of the Convention during the Reign of Terror. IDEK, this book.

Reading (and listening to) Les Mis - it’s only 100,000 words longer than A Dance With Dragons. Most important thing so far - imitation lace is a term used for machine-made lace, which was cheaper than handmade.
