-- 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, 3.1.93: "Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch; marry, 'tis enough."
Mercutio says his wound is nothing much, only a "scratch" from a kitty (Tybalt, King of Cats), but it is indeed enough to kill him.
