"In his introduction to this division of his work, he gives some very sensible observations
upon the origin of the English stage. In the following remarks on the Histories of our poet
he takes a different, and we think a juster, view of their origin and purpose than Malone and
the other commentators. Although Percy puts his own opinions cautiously, if not timidly,
it is clear that he had higher notions of Shakspere as an artist than those who were arro-
gating to themselves the merit of having made him ' popular.'" — Knight : Studies of Shabpere,
