Welcome to my web site, now under development for more than twenty years.
-- Philip Weller, November 13, 1941 - February 1, 2021
Dr. Weller, an Eastern Washington University professor of English and Shakespearean scholar for more than 50 years.
Note to Romeo and Juliet, 2.4.15: "the very pin of his heart"
very pin: i.e., exact center. A peg ("pin") often served as the bull's-eye of an archery target.
Five bolts (arrows) have been shot from a crossbow at a
target which has a roundel with a pin in its center in the image below.
