Example text

The style of the whole is more sententious than imaginative: the glowing colours of fancy could not with propriety have been employed on such a subject. In the passages where the humiliating rejection of the poor Helena is most painfully affecting, STA All's Well That Ends Well fi34 34 11/23/2009 3:43:34 PM All’s Well That Ends Well in the Nineteenth Century 35 the cowardly Parolles steps in to the relief of the spectator.

I am to avow then, that I do not clearly discern that Sir John Falstaff deserves to bear the character so generally given him of an absolute coward; or, in other words, that I do not conceive Shakespeare ever meant to make cowardice an essential part of his constitution.
