What does "a rare, rare fiddle" imply in "Why be given a body if you have to keep it shut up in a case like a rare, rare fiddle?"?
If one owned a "rare, rate fiddle," a violin such as an Amati, one would keep it safely stored in a safe place, one would keep it "shut up in a case." The author is saying that one's body should not be treated in such a manner, that one's body was meant to be used and to be enjoyed.
