Sivu 188 - FROM my boyish days I had always felt a great perplexity on one point in Macbeth : it was this : the knocking at the gate, which succeeds to the murder of Duncan, produced to my feelings an effect for which I never could account: the effect was — that it reflected back upon the...
Sivu 194 - O mighty poet! - Thy works are not as those of other men, simply and merely great works of art; but are also like the phenomena of nature, like the sun and the sea, the stars and the flowers, like frost and snow, rain and dew, hail-storm and thunder, which are to be studied with entire submission of our own faculties, and in the perfect faith that in them there can be no too much or too little, nothing useless or inert - but that, the further we press in our discoveries, the more we shall see proofs...
Sivu 190 - ... exhibits human nature in its most abject and humiliating attitude. Such an attitude would little suit the purposes of the poet. What then must he do? He must throw the interest on the murderer. Our sympathy must be with him...
Sivu 192 - This was to be expressed ; and on its own account, as well as to make it a more proportionable antagonist to the unoffending nature of their victim, ' the gracious Duncan,' and adequately to expound the ' deep damnation of his taking off,' this was to be expressed with peculiar energy.
Sivu 51 - The true antithesis* to knowledge, in this case, is not pleasure, but power. All that is literature seeks to communicate power ; all that is not literature, to communicate knowledge.
Sivu 190 - In fact, my understanding said positively that it could not produce any effect. But I knew better ; I felt that it did ; and I waited and clung to the problem until further knowledge should enable me to solve it. At length, in 1812, Mr. Williams made his...
Sivu 191 - Shakespeare has introduced two murderers, and, as usual in his hands, they are remarkably discriminated ; but, though in Macbeth the strife of mind is greater than in his wife, the tiger spirit not so awake, and his feelings caught chiefly by contagion from her...
Sivu 336 - IN making labour the foundation of the value of commodities, and the comparative quantity of labour which is necessary to their production, the rule which determines the respective quantities of goods which shall be given in exchange for each other, we must not be supposed to deny the accidental and temporary deviations of the actual or market price of commodities from this, their primary and natural price.
Sivu 138 - He was unhappy before the great ideas of Virtue — of Truth — and of God; because he knew how feeble are the approximations to them which a son of earth can make. But this was a dream : God be thanked, that in reality there is no such craving and asking eye directed upwards to heaven — to which death will not one day bring an answer ! IMAGINATION UNTAMED BY THE COARSER REALITIES OF LIFE.
Sivu 190 - But this is wrong, for it is unreasonable to expect all men to be great artists, and born with the genius of Mr. Williams. Now it will be remembered that in the first of these murders (that of the Marrs) the same incident (of a knocking at the door soon after the work of extermination was complete) did actually occur which the genius of...
