Nakedness in a Digital Age

LOVE Richard Rodriguez! I followed him--floated out after him, really--once out of lecture hall and out to the subway...and then i wrote to him about it afterwards...and he didn't find me completely insane, lol. No better writing teacher than reading this piece. How does he do it?
"You will recall that when King Lear takes off his clothes, he offends majesty. The scandal of Lear’s abrogation is that, without raiment, a king is a frail, poor creature, indistinguishable from a groundling; his kingdom is disarmed."
