secret of his poetic genius from posterity. But the
advocates of the new hypothesis lose sight of the most
essential point of all. The great wonder is not that a
man without learning should have written such plays
as those which go under the name of Shakspeare : the
wonder is that any man should have written them. The
works of a great genius must always seem marvellous in
our eyes ; and, if the genius be transcendent, the con-
templation of its productions must fill us with a sort of
bewildering astonishment It would, however, be still
more miraculous if it could be proved that Bacon, and
not Shakspeare, had written those wonderful dramas ;
for examples have repeatedly occurred of men in whom
a rare genius has supplied the want of almost every
external advantage, but no well-authenticated instance
can be found in the whole history of the human intel-
lect, of one and the same man belonging to the highest
rank of philosophers and the highest rank of poets.
Nor can a single example be cited of any one author
writing in two styles so totally different as those of
Bacon and Shakspeare.
