Oh," said Helena. "You misjudge my mother. She is impervious to sex." … "Mother’s shock area," continued Helena imperturbably, "is confined to the higher brain centers; the ‘bump’ of grammar and usage is highly developed. She’s morally offended by impure English." "Like what?" encouraged Kay. "Dangling modifiers. Improper prepositions. ‘Aggravating’ to mean ‘annoying,’ ‘demean’ to mean ‘lower,’ ‘sinister.’" “‘Sinister’?" echoed the publisher’s reader. "Mother says it only means left-handed or done with the left hand. If you tell her a person is sinister, all she will infer, she says, is that he’s left-handed. A deed, she allows, may be sinister, if it’s done sidewise or ‘under the robe’ or ‘on the wrong side of the blanket.’ — The Group - Mary McCarthy

Shakespeare lived through the tail end of the roughest phase of primitive accumulation in England, and his plays reflect the chaos of the time, their bloodiness, their immense excitement, and the irreconcilable dissonance between Christianity and capitalism, between unstoppered material appetite and Christ’s asceticism, His antipathy toward wealth and usury, His preference for the poor. Widespread misery was occasioned by the seizure of the common lands, moors and forests, and their transformation into private property. This misery manifested itself chiefly in waves of homeless rural poor descending on the cities, seeking food, shelter, work, and finding less than they needed; in the fiery growth of religious dissidence, religious radicalism and factionalism, challenging the orthodoxy, feeding rivers of ancient class resentment and the explosive pressures generated by a rapidly rising mercantile class rubbing up against a truculent, greedy aristocracy. A social, political revolution in England in the seventeeth century was inevitable. — Tony Kushner, Death and Taxes: Hydriotaphia and Other Plays (via goneril-and-regan)
