Learning Disabilities

Aristophanes, Clouds 628-631 (tr. Benjamin Bickley Rogers):
Never, no never have I seen a clown
So helpless, and forgetful, and absurd!
Why if he learns a quirk or two he clean
Forgets them ere he has learnt them.

οὐκ εἶδον οὕτως ἄνδρ᾿ ἄγροικον οὐδαμοῦ
οὐδ᾿ ἄπορον οὐδὲ σκαιὸν οὐδ᾿ ἐπιλήσμονα,
ὅστις σκαλαθυρμάτι᾿ ἄττα μικρὰ μανθάνων
ταῦτ᾿ ἐπιλέλησται πρὶν μαθεῖν.

631 ταῦτ᾿ codd.: πάντ᾿ Blaydes
