Seite 34 - As Plautus and Seneca are accounted the best for Comedy and Tragedy among the Latins, so Shakespeare among the English is the most excellent in both kinds for the stage...
Seite 64 - Guardians, without ambition either of self-profit or fame: only to keep the memory of so worthy a Friend and Fellow alive as was our SHAKESPEARE, by humble offer of his plays to your most noble patronage.
Seite 37 - O, for my sake do you with Fortune chide, The guilty goddess of my harmful deeds, That did not better for my life provide Than public means which public manners breeds. Thence comes it that my name receives a brand, And almost thence my nature is subdued To what it works in, like the dyer's hand...
Seite 72 - WHAT needs my Shakespeare for his honour'd bones The labour of an age in piled stones, Or that his hallow'd relics should be hid Under a star-ypointing pyramid ? Dear son of memory, great heir of fame, What need'st thou such weak witness of thy name ? Thou, in our wonder and astonishment, Hast built thyself a live-long monument : For whilst, to th...

For though the poet's matter nature be, His art doth give the fashion : and, that he 278 Who casts to write a living line, must sweat,...
Seite 31 - Sweet Swan of Avon! what a sight it were To see thee in our water yet appear, And make those flights upon the banks of Thames That so did take Eliza and our James!
Seite 168 - I have no other but a woman's reason : I think him so, because I think him so.
Seite 68 - Euripides, and Sophocles to us, Pacuvius, Accius, him of Cordova, dead, To life again, to hear thy buskin tread And shake a stage ; or, when thy socks were on, Leave thee alone for the comparison Of all that insolent Greece or haughty Rome Sent forth, or since did from their ashes come.
