“Lay not that flattering unction to your soul,
That not your trespass but my madness speaks;
It will but skin and film the ulcerous place,
Whilst rank corruption, mining all within,
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.”
