In this work the most interesting portions of the career of Shakespeare, taken from the best accredited sources, are brought forward in a pleasing narrative, the dialogue being in the style of the Elizabethan period.Throughout the work the writer has endeavoured, amidst a great deal of stirring incident, and a subordinate tale of much interest, to place the Poet constantly before the reader, whether on or off the scene.
"Ay, yonder boy! His strength and skill were so great that, had I not cried peccavi, I had died under his blows."
"And for this you are resolved to shoot him!"
"I am! I cannot forget the disgrace of his quarter-staff. My very bones ache now at the bare remembrance."
"Aye, but thou must forget it, comrade," said the other; "for to shoot him, look ye, might get the rangers all into trouble. He hath, you see, gone out of our bounds this morning; but let us follow, and if we find him we will both beat him. As far as that goes, I am your man. 'Tis allowable, and in the way of business. But for shooting the lad--fie on't! 'tis cowardly and dangerous. Ever while you live, forbear your bullet on a defenceless person."
"Well, be it so!" said his fellow. "I agree. He hath had the best of me, for once in his life. But, at least, will I be revenged:--blow for blow."
"Hath he good friends, said ye?"
