Here’s to Cacophony

Are they trying to make it sound (no pun intended) like cacophony is a bad thing?

“In literature, cacophony is used to refer to words that have a harsh, jarring sound. Instead of the text being rhythmic or pleasant, the text is unmelodious…. or poems written in a disjointed way.”

Here’s an example of cacophony: “To be, or not to be- that is the question” (Written by Shakespeare and he turned out pretty good)

So, I guess “cacophony’s” not so bad.

I’ll take a sip of c-coffee to that. Cheers!
