INTRODUCTION
This book has grown out of a series of articles contributed to ”The
Saturday Review” some ten or twelve years ago. As they appeared they
were talked of and criticized in the usual way; a minority of readers
thought ”the stu” interesting; many held that my view of Shakespeare
was purely arbitrary; others said I had used a concordance to such
purpose that out of the mass of words I had managed, by virtue of some
unknown formula, to re-create the character of the man.
