B's are respectable[edit]

I disagree with the B designation, as it doesn't really fit, but it's the nearest thing. The reason that I felt that this article, in particular, was more than the general DNB distillate is that ... well ... it is. The article represents all the fact we have on the fellow (from the DNB) and some of the uses/reception (from Frank Kermode and others), and so this article actually offers more than any print source that I know of (at least in Reference). Aurelian Townshend is one of those Elizabethans that TS Eliot's generation rediscovered, but, for all their rediscovery, the man's life just drops off the map, and his literary remains are few and difficult to ascertain precisely. Thus, as little as is here is the little there is (that I could find, anyway). Geogre 17:29, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Changed to C-class; not enough information for B-class, regardless of how much is actually available. —tktktk 06:25, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
