" As the soule oi Eupborbus was thought to Hue in Pythagorus : so the sweete wittie soule of
Ouid liues in mellifluous & hony-tongued Shakespeare, witnes his Venus and j4donis, his
Lucrece, his sugred Sonnets among his priuate friends, &fc.

As Plautus and Seneca are accounted the best for Comedy and Tragedy among the Latines :
so Shakespeare, among y*^. English is the most excellent in both kinds for the stage ; for
Comedy, wirnes his Gitlemi of Verona, his Errors, his Loue labors lost, his Loue labours ivonne,
his Midsummers night dreame, & his Merchant 0/ Venice: for Tragedy, his Richard the 2. Richard
the 3. Henry the 4. King lohn, Titus u4ndronicus, and his Romeo and luliet.

As Epius Stolo said, that the Muses would speake with Plautus tongue, if they would
speak Latin : so 1 say that the Muses would speak with Shakespeares fine filed phrase, if
they would speake English." — p. 152.

over to him his sonnets before they were printed.'' — Schlegel : Lectures on Dramatic Art

Contains numerous quotations from Shakespeare.

" Who was the editor of 'England's Parnassus' in 1600 is a matter of speculation, our only
guide being the initials R. A. . . . The letters may belong to Robert Armin or to Robert
Allot."

"It constantly happens that famous passages belonging to one distinguished poet are attributed
to another : thus, Shakespeare's speech by Gaunt in ' Richard II ' is transferred to Drayton ;
and we might refer to whole stanzas by Spenser that are attributed to Daniel."

We have never misrepresented the original edition of ' England's Parnassus.' If Gaunt's
speech be there imputed to Drayton, or a long passage in Daniel's ' Civil Wars ' be coolly
handed over to Shakespeare, we have left the names precisely as they stand in the old
impression : what we have done has been, in our brief bracketted note immediately following
'each quotation, to point out the error and its remedy in the shortest possible form. —
