第121页 - I loved Ophelia: forty thousand brothers Could not with all their quantity of love, Make up my sum.
第174页 - Others apart sat on a hill retired, In thoughts more elevate, and reasoned high Of providence, foreknowledge, will, and fate; Fix'd fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute: And found no end, in wandering mazes lost.
第121页 - ... called in question, we think, by those who did not understand it. It is more interesting than according to rules: amiable, though not faultless. The ethical delineations of "that noble and liberal casuist" (as Shakespeare has been well called) do not exhibit the drab-coloured quakerism of morality.
第175页 - Meantime the matter and diction seemed to me characterized not so much by poetic thoughts, as by thoughts translated into the language of poetry.

第174页 - ... there was a long and blessed interval, during which my natural faculties were allowed to expand, and my original tendencies to develope themselves — my fancy, and the love of nature, and the sense of beauty in forms and sounds.
第119页 - Hamlet is a name ; his speeches and sayings but the idle coinage of the poet's brain. What, then, are they not real? They are as real as our own thoughts ; their reality is in the reader's mind. It is we who are Hamlet. This play has a prophetic truth, which is above that of history.
