From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
The most disappointing book out of the whole bunch was a dialogue about the uses of long noses. Tristram suspects you might be thinking dirty thoughts again—so don't. If Satan gets hold of you, Tristram says, buck him off—with a long list of very, very suggestive verbs.
Read on, he says, or you won't be able to figure out the meaning of the next marbled* page. (And here, Tristram actually inserts a marbled page.)
*Marbling is the swirly coloring you sometimes see on the covers and insides of old books.
