And I thought people were cleverer at words in the 19th century.

Poe, Kafka, Shelley, Kipling, Dickinson, Wells, Byron, Blake, Whitman, Dostoevsky, Thoreau, Emerson, Shaw, Verne, Dumas, Alcott, Stevenson, Chekhov, Keats, Bronte, Melville ...... so many more, you could see your days out reading all their works.

But should you ?
