NUMBER:5342
AUTHOR:Walter Savage Landor (1775–1864)
QUOTATION:Shakespeare is not our poet, but the world’s,— 1
Therefore on him no speech! And brief for thee,
Browning! Since Chaucer was alive and hale,
No man hath walk’d along our roads with steps
So active, so inquiring eye, or tongue
So varied in discourse.
ATTRIBUTION:To Robert Browning.
 
Note 1.
Nor sequent centuries could hit
Orbit and sum of Shakespeare’s wit.
Ralph Waldo Emerson: May-Day and Other Pieces. Solution. [back]
