Amalfi By Any Other Name

We've arrived at the Amalfi coast, at a place we stayed at in January, 2007. In March it's still off-season here, so the price of accommodations is reduced.

I just realized that The Duchess Of Malfi, an important, gruesome English play, was set in this area. I hadn't figured out that Malfi was Jacobean English for Amalfi. Duh. Silly me.

Technically it's Modern English, but...
Jacobean can leave you asking "What?!"
