As Only a Brit Would Say…

From Stephen Fry’s “The Ode Less Travelled” (subtitle: Unlocking the Poet Within).

In the Foreword, he writes: “Behind it all, the dread memory of classrooms swollen into resentful silence while the English teacher invites us to ‘respond’ to a poem.”

No American would ever write a sentence like that. I love British writers.
