Excerpt from Remarks on the Life and Writings of William Shakspeare: With a List of Essays and Dissertations on His Dramatic Writings, &C

Every species of literary composition ought to be devoted to some useful end. The le itimale province of the biographer, is to impart thatiind of informa tion which is calculated to inform the understanding and ameliorate the heart. It is his duty to state every illustrative fact connected with the person whose life he portrays; to rouse the ardent mind to emulation, by the display of such qualities as do honour to human nature, and to point out and reprove those failings which detract from the perfection of human character. It is also his province to trace the progress of genius from the cradle to the grave, to observe the gradations of its developement into bloom, and to mark those peculiarities by which it is distinguished; those acci dents by which it is attracted or repelled, incited or repressed. Could such a sketch be drawn of Shak Speare with the unerring pencil of truth, directed by some corres onding mind, what an interesting scene would be unihlded for the contemplation of philosophy.
