I think you over-romanticize. Scholars use key words to index into works
all the time. I don't know if 'rose' was a great example, but I can easily
imagine a teacher wanting to look at references to planets, gold, other key
words. Who knows exactly why.

Sure I'll pick Shakespeare apart any day, with or without regular
expressions. I'll even put his Collected Works on an operating table under
bright lights, and cut into it with a scalpel, just to hear the romantics
Does that mean I can't appreciate Shakespeare? Do romantics own him?

Maybe so, maybe so.
