' Well, on the whole, plain profe muft be my fate : Wifdom (curfe on it) will come foon or late. There is a time when Poets will grow dull : 206...
Strona 409 - Sometimes a play, that is showy with common-places, and where the manners are well marked, though of no elegance, without force or art, gives the people much higher delight and more effectually commands their attention, than verse void of matter, and tuneful trifles.
