Per WT:RFD#毛主席 I wanted us to verify this attirbutive use, otherwise simply putting "that it's commonly used for Williams Shakespeare isn't enough (IMO). RFV-sense, "Eloquent poetry". I think if this is verified, this sense at least isn't a proper noun. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:19, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
- I have added the noun sense and inserted one citation. The citation shows it being modified by an adjective and not directly referring to the Bard or his works. This is in contrast to uses such as "the early Shakespeare" or "The Alabama Shakespeare Festival branches out from pure Shakespeare this year to include Chekhov". The Noun sense is in widespread use and I would hope not be worth challenging. DCDuring TALK 19:50, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
RFV failed, sense removed. —RuakhTALK 02:06, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
