Perhaps we could say that Greenblatt hoped to take the real world and the academy "--apparently so distant from one another in their symbolic stakes and their cultural position--[and make them] to touch and resonate." But he failed.

Great series, by the way. I doubt anyone outside academics would understand it, but I couldn't stop laughing. Keep up the good work.
