Сторінка 58 - He was the man who of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, had the largest and most comprehensive soul. All the images of nature were still present to him, and he drew them not laboriously, but luckily : when he describes anything, you more than see it, you feel it too.
Сторінка 27 - ... for wit lying most in the assemblage of ideas, and putting those together with quickness and variety, wherein can be found any resemblance or congruity, thereby to make up pleasant pictures and agreeable visions in the fancy...
Сторінка 46 - When we look on such hideous objects, we are not a little pleased to think we are in no danger of them*. We consider them, at the same time, as dreadful and harmless ; so that, the more frightful appearance they make, the greater is the pleasure we receive from the sense of our own safety.

Сторінка 45 - As a perfect tragedy is the noblest production of human nature, so it is capable of giving the mind one of the most delightful and most improving / entertainments. A virtuous man (says Seneca)^ struggling with misfortunes, is such a spectacle as gods might look upon with pleasure ; and such a pleasure it is which one meets with in the representation of a well-written tragedy.
Сторінка 39 - Ne pueros coram populo Medea trucidet, Aut humana palam coquat exta nefarius Atreus, Aut in avem Procne vertatur, Cadmus in anguem. Quodcunque ostendis mihi sic incredulus odi.
Сторінка 31 - And poets may be allowed the like liberty for describing things which really exist not, if they are founded on popular belief. Of this nature are fairies, pigmies, and the extraordinary effects of magic; for it is still an imitation, though of other men's fancies: and thus are Shakespeare's Tempest, his Midsummer Night's Dream, and Ben Jonson's Masque of Witches to be defended.
