פשוטו של מקרא



Shabbos 63a

                  What’s Pshat?

ר' כהנא said, “ When I was eighteen years I completed
the  whole Shas and I didn’t know that the פסוק doesn’t
leave the Pshat (אין המקרא יוצא מידי פשוטו) until now.

It. is very difficult to understand how an eighteen year
Yeshiva Bachur who completed  all of Shas isn’t aware
that the פסוקים are meant to be understood as פשוט פשט.
The Chasam Sofer 
(תורת משה פ' בשלח ד"ה קצת מדרוש) writes that the
original מסורה was to teach first the children only דרוש and
not פשט.

Even though this system doesn’t seem right, this was the מסורה 
of previous generations. ( The Ch.S. has a lengthy explanation
of why it was done so)

It would seem that the opponents of the ספר פשוטו של מקרא
would like to reintroduce the long since forgotten מסורה and
even take it further by holding back even adults
from פשוטו של מקרא
