Shakespeare possesses the power of subordinating nature for the purposes of expression, beyond all poets.? His imperial muse tosses the creation like a bauble from hand to hand, and uses it to embody any caprice of thought that is uppermost in his mind.?

We are made aware that magnitude of material things is relative, and all objects shrink and expand to serve the passion of the poet.

Whenever a mind is simple and receives a divine wisdom, old things pass away, - means, teachers, texts, temples fall;it lives now, and absorbs past and future into the present hour.?
