Oy, ol Ben was a rowdy one, definitely a free thinker. Some reading I enjoyed that was suprisingly interesting was the poetry confrontation between Aphra Behn and John Wilmont, Earl of Rochester. It was a course titled Bawdy Literature of the 14th Century. Behn was the more creative writer, Rochester was jealous so he turned into more of a shock jock for his time.
