Citation and Examination of William Shakspeare
Citation and Examination of William Shakspeare is a classic Shakespeare studies text by Walter Savage Landor. The frolic of Shakspeare in deer-stealing was the cause of his Hegira; and his connection with players in London was the cause of his writing plays. Had he remained in his native town, his ambition had never been excited by the applause of the intellectual, the popular, and the powerful, which, after all, was hardly sufficient to excite it. He wrote from the same motive as he acted, --to earn his daily bread. He felt his own powers; but he cared little for making them felt by others more than served his wants.
