This might actually be more of a cultural question, also I can't tag at the moment. I apologize.
But here's my question.
I'm reading a (rather terrible) novel just now and there's the quote, [She was] alarmed [...] by the Dean's willingness to quote Shakespeare at a civilised dinner party.
What is wrong with quoting Shakespeare? Maybe I should add that the novel seems to be set around 1894 in England, although the character who is alarmed here is from New York.
