Title or CaptionShakespeare memorial [on reverse]
Published caption: Shakespeare memorials that we don't want.
Printed under published cartoon: Plans are on foot that some people think amount to extending a sort of Philistine patronage to Shakespeare, and giving him a sort of moral endorsement. Statues are suggested and memorial halls in which stodgy lectures shall be delivered by the kind of people who write mediocre prefaces to his works. A protest has been made against lowering the grand name of Shakespeare by putting it on hideous cast-iron statues such as we have too many in London already.
