Abstract:

"The genius of Shakespeare is most apparent in the Stratford poet's unique power of expression -- in his rare capacity to represent human truth with such intensity of felling, such depth of understanding, and such felicity of phrase as to make his words an intricate part of English speechways. The captivating magic of Shakespeare's language lies in its superb qualities of spontaneity, of universality, and of perennial freshness that 'age cannot wither, nor custom stale.' ... The present sampling of the Bard's wit and wisdom is necessarily limited. Modern readers will want to take the advice of the compilers of the First Folio, and read the complete texts of the poems and plays, again and again. Shakespeare never grows old, for as Ben Jonson so wisely said, 'He was not of an age, but for all time!'"
