I used this as a mnemonic years ago, I think at Glasgow University in an English Literature paper - but I can't for the life of me remember what it was designed to recall.
I'm almost sure it was Shakespeare play, maybe A Winter's Tale. Theme, plot, that sort of thing.
There must be a syndrome for the disconnection of mnemonic from an actual memory?
Or a word for a mnemonic which doesn't remind you of anything anymore?
Could there be anything more forlorn?!
