Letters to the Editor
Sir, I refer to V.S. Ravi's article, "No doubts about his genius" ( Aug. 31 ). Loudly and clearly, he has denounced the result of the BBC poll. It needs extraordinary dull-headedness not to be aware of Shakespeare's genius. The poll result reflects the quality of the people of this century.
Sir, There could be little doubt in declaring Shakespeare the king of words and the most quoted writer. But a poet should be able to penetrate the soul. Shakespeare lacked this ability and that was one of the reasons that made the literary giant of the 19th century, Leo Tolstoy, come down severely on him.
