الصفحة 44 - I deny not what you urge of arts and sciences, that they have flourished in some ages more than others; but your instance in philosophy makes for me. For if natural causes be more known now than in the time of Aristotle, because more studied, it follows that poesy and other arts may, with the same pains, arrive still nearer to perfection.
الصفحة 67 - Particularly, the action is so much one, that it is the only of the kind without episode, or underplot ; every scene in the tragedy conducing to the main design, and every act concluding with a turn of it.
