[Exeunt. Of this play the fable is wild and pleasing. Iknow not how the ladies will approve the facilitywith which both Rosalind and Celia give awaytheir hearts. To Celia much may be forgiven, forthe heroism of her friendship. The character ofJaques is natural and well preserved. The comicdialogue is very sprightly, with less mixture of lowbuffoonery than in some other plays; and the graverpart is elegant and harmonious. By hastening tothe end of this work, Shakspeare suppressed thedialogue between the usurper and the hermit, andlost an opportunity of exhibiting a moral lesson, inwhich he might have found matter worthy of hishighest powers.
