Page 265 - And let those that play your clowns speak no more than is set down for them : for there be of them that will themselves laugh, to set on some" quantity of barren spectators to laugh too ; though, in the mean time, some necessary question of the play be then to be considered : that's villainous, and shows a most pitiful ambition in the fool that uses it.
Page 115 - Yet must I not give Nature all ; thy art, My gentle Shakespeare, must enjoy a part.— For though the poet's matter nature be, His art doth give the fashion...
