Excerpt from Shakspearian Readings: Selected and Adapted for Young Persons and Others
I shall presume, then, that the persons into whose hands these my Readings fall, are in possession, or will in proper time be put in possession, of Shak speare entire; and my apology for them is, that they are selected and adapted as exercises for the voice, (may I not add, for the heart and understanding also, and the formation of a healthy taste in poetry?) to be used as auxiliary to, not in place of, the full, unmutilated text - In this volume, the selections are only from the histories; but a second volume is in contemplation, with selections illustrative of character from the tragedies and comedies.
