Name of Uranus’s Moons

This is the 4th edition of *drum rolls* Pop Quizz! A quizz in which the answers are not obvious and if it is obvious, and you get it wrong, you are rebuked at!!!

Occasionally, I will occasionally ask a question, and the reader will answer them! For every wrong answer, I will consider one of your comments a spam. Ha! See how you like that suckers! (I am kidding, of course) Sometimes, a wrong answer won’t invite rage, some really obvious one will, and you will be called an idiot if you can’t answer the obvious one. In fact, I may have to make an extra page on my blog for the lists of idiots. 🙂

So, question of the day is: 1. 4. Uranus have various moons. Their names are named after the characters of the works of two authors. What are the name of the two authors? (Extra credit to those who know from which work does the name of the moons come from) And no Uranus jokes, K?

 

 Just a picture to destract you. 🙂 (so smooth and round…)

(Clue: As you see, there are two difficulties, 1 and 4. The fact that one of the author is difficulty one is a dead giveaway that he is very famous and talented. Not helping you with the other one, though. 🙂 )

And the answer is… William Shakespeare (c’mon, what did you expect?), and Alexander Pope (this one was more difficult, wasn’t it?)!
