How Books Learn - Alan Jacobs

In light of this long, long history, during which the poem has had to learn so much, adapt to so many circumstances, how could it be intimidated by the rise of electronic reading? “Why should I concern myself with bits and pixels? I remember the harried scribe with his papyrus sheets. I was once a song.”

"There is occasions and causes why and wherefore in all things."
- Fluellen, Henry V, 5.1
