One response to ““He’s a gentleman” by William Shakespeare

  1. For the record, that quote is spoken by Edgar who is disguised as “Tom O’ Bedlam” – a crazy person. It’s hardly like the author is making it as a positive statement. Really quite the contrary, actually – it’s something a loony would say.
