"The Inimitable Jeeves is deeply political, at least after you read it a hundred times"

This man has read The Inimitable Jeeves and Hamlet more than a hundred times each. He has some interesting things to say about them. "One may continue to believe in the breeding of the English aristocracy after reading Marx. Not after reading about the Drones club," he writes. Also: "Hamlet himself is hilarious; every second line is a joke. He’s more or less a standup comedian who has taken the death of his dad as the theme of a four-hour set."
