It is in the spirit of Shakespeare’s Rude Mechanicals quoted below, that we undertake,
collectively, to build the Wall:
Would you desire lime and hair to speak better?
It is the wittiest partition that ever I heard discourse, my lord.
- Shakespeare, Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 5:1
The Wall is a collaboration among editors Bronwyn Mills, Eric Darton, and Hardy Griffin.
While the source of editorial comments could be one of us, all work is duly credited
to the actual authors and translators. While we have titled it The Wall--in part, in these
unusual times, as an act of linguistic resistence--we hope you will find it a partition
which is both witty and permeable.
