Duke Senior claims the exiles’ ‘life, exempt from public haunt, / Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, / Sermons in stones’ (I.i.17–9). The Arden editor notes the three parallel metaphors on ‘homiletic edification in inanimate things’, and cross-refers to the passage in III.ii.152–154 where Rosalind remarks tartly on the boredom of listening to long sermons. The New Cambridge editor brings forward Richard Hooker on the threefold sources of Christian revelation: the bible, sermons, and the book of nature. The Oxford editor speaks of graceful platitudes, tinged with Stoicism.
