This is a really poor article. Someone please improve it. Perhaps use the articles on classicism in other languages to help? Also some distinction needs to be made in English between classicism and neoclassicism. The section on Shakespeare and French classicism is particularly egregious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:03, 10 May 2014 (UTC)


A stub is an article that is too short to provide encyclopedic coverage of the subject, but not so short as to provide no useful information. To qualify as a stub it must at least define the meaning of the article's title. Often that means three to ten short sentences, but less text may be sufficient to qualify as a stub for articles on narrow topics, and complicated topics with more than ten sentences may still be stubs. However, in reality, many articles which are labeled as stubs are much longer than that. You can help Wikipedia by removing inappropriate stub notices.
