The Prince at the Bar
Education, Universities, Mathematics, Class
Discussing Prince Edward's embarkation on a legal training, considers the winding and predetermined 'royal road' to learning that he will follow, including the jump 'To the Isis from the Cam' (i.e. from the University of Cambridge to the University of Oxford), a change that is so dramatic that one should 'Ask him not if mathematic, / Or if classic be his choice, / By this royal road erratic / He must trudge, without a choice'.
