. The comedies, histories, tragedies, and poems of William Shakspere. cate, and which he appears to us on many occa-sions to have kept in view in his later plays.

By atouch almost magical Shakspere takes us inan instant out of that dark prison, where wehave been sun-ounded with crime and suffer-ing, to make us see the morning star brightover the hills, and hear the tinkle of thesheep-bell in the folds, and picture theshepherd bidding the iiock go forth topasture, before the sun has lighted up thede^y lawns.
