Thus while I wondering pause o'er Shakspeare's page,
I mark in visions of delight the sage,
High o'er the wrecks of man who stands sublime;
A column in the melancholy waste,
(Its cities humbled and its glories past)
Majestic 'mid the solitude of time.
DR. Wolcot.

Shakspeare is the Homer of the English ; he is altogether national.— In spite of philosophy and new views, the change of manners and the progress of knowledge, he reigns in the heart of the literature of his country. WILLEMAIN.
