Neil Gaiman – The Sandman, vol. 10 (1996)
Ben: So…tell me about your new play. Does it go well?
Will: Not really, no. I am writing a scene in which Miranda, our virginal and innocent heroine, sits and listens as her father Prospero, the exiled and deposed Duke of Milan, and a wise magician, laboriously explains the plot to her.
I trust they will finish soon, and allow me to get on to more interesting matters.
