Gadzooks, forsooth!

Is this a blagger I see before me? He draweth out the thread of his verbosity finer than the thread of his argument.

Let me have men and words about me that are fat.

Taffeta phrases, silken terms precise, / three-piled hyperboles, spruce affectation, / figures pedantical; these summer flies have blown me full of maggot ostentation: /

I do forswear them.
