WILL. SHAKSPERE:

Printed Complete from the TEXT of

SAM. JOHNSON and GEO, STEEVENS,

And revised from the last Editions.

Passages omitted in Representation, are distinguished by invenied Commass thus"

When Learning's triumph o'er her barb'rous foes
First rear'd the Stage, immortal SHAKS PERE rose;
Each change of many-colour'd life he drew,
Exhausted worlds, and then imagin'd new :
Existence saw him spurn her bounded reign,
And panting Time toil'd after him in vain:
His pow'rful strokes ptesoling Truth confess'd,
And unresisted Passion, stogm'a the breast.

DR. SAMUEL JOHNSON
