9781331243298: Shakespeare and Other Lectures (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Shakespeare and Other Lectures

Ever since the publication of Mr Dawson's "Biographical Lectures," friends have been asking for others, which they remembered hearing in their delivery; and thus has been prompted the preparation of the present volume.

The volume contains lectures and speeches - some delivered in earlier years, some in later, and differing considerably in style and merit; but the greater disparities are more owing to the reporter than the speaker. When a lecture is reported by Miss Beauclerc - as is the case with the one on the Shadow of Death we have a near approach to fulness and accuracy; but some of the newspaper reports are mere fragments which have missed what was most characteristic, and are only included because they serve as connecting links.

In the preparation of the book I have had, as before, the invaluable help of Miss Beauclerc in collating and transcribing. The volume, we know, will be acceptable to Mr Dawson's old friends; and we trust it will be found bracing and helpful to young people.

The Editor has supplied the foot-notes.
