The extent of his attainments made him little doubtful of their capabilities. It was the most felicitous circumstance of his life, that abandoning the drama religiously, and His tory from calamity, he fixed upon a Theme of such exquisite beauty as enabled him to bear the evils of blindness and adversity, soothed by the nightly harmonics of heaven, and sustained nu faulteringly by the holy fervour of inspired Poesy.
