Excerpt from Comments on the Plays of Beaumont and Fletcher: With an Appendix, Containing Some Further Observations on Shakespeare, Extended to the Late Editions of Malone and Steevens

There is no more devoted admirer of Shakespeare than I am myself; he is, in. Deed, to use his own language, the god of my idolatry: I, therefore, neither wonder nor repine at the general prepossession in his favour; but I am somewhat surprised, that this very prepossession has not induced his admirers to pay some attention to his contemporary poets, Beaumont and Fletcher, Whose language, manner, and spirit, are so congenial to his, and who possess so large la portion of his admirable talents.
