Fellow grown-ups, at the risk of sounding snobbish and joyless and old, we are better than this. I know, I know: Live and let read. Far be it from me to disrupt the “everyone should just read/watch/listen to whatever they like” ethos of our era.
1. My guess is that let read = let [you] read, so the subject is the implied you. Right?
2. This syntax sounds quaint, so does this involve grammar from an earlier form of English? Please explain and elucidate, since I want to look up the formal terms describing this issue (such as these)?
