" It is, in truth, rather an encomium on Shakespeare, than a commentary or critique on

liim and is written, more to show extraordinary love, than extraordinary knowledge of his

productions. Nevertheless, it is a very pleasing book — and, we do not hesitate to say, a book
of very considerable originality and genius." — Edinburgh Re-view, Aug._ 1817, p. 472.

" We should not have condescended to notice the senseless and wicked sophistry of this
writer . . . had we not considered him as one of the representatives of a class of men by
whom literature is more than at any former period disgraced, who are labouring to effect
their mischievous purposes non m sed sape cadendo ; and therefore conceived that it might not
be unprofitable to show how very small a portion of talent and literature was necessary tor
carrying on the trade of sedition." — ^artcrly Re-vieiv, January, 1 8 18, p. 466.
