For lofty sense,
Shakspeare was the man, who, of all modern, and perhaps ancient poets, bad the largest and most comprehensive soul. All the images of Nature were still present to bim, and he drew them not laboriously, but jackily: wben he describes any thing, you more than see it, you feel it too. Those, who accuse him to have wanted learning, give him the greater commendation : he was naturally learned ; he needed not the spectacles of books to read Nature ; he looked in wards, and found her there.
