Excerpt from Aureng-Zebe, a Tragedy, And, Book II of the Chace, a Poem: Edited With Biographical Memoirs and Notes

Modern criticism of Dryden's plays has generally been severe, and not always just. For this there are several causes. His comedies are largely tainted with gross in decency, and altogether unfit for the stage of to-day. His tragedies, though comparatively free from this taint, are in some cases based on repulsive subjects. In many of them the extravagance Of action and the turgid rant of language are such as to create wonder at their having ever been admired; while the rhymed metre of the heroic plays is altogether Opposed to the national conception of serious drama. With rare exceptions, the characterization is feeble, and the resort to supernatural agency, to which Dryden was in his early days so much addicted, only adds to the improbability which the more than human attributes of his heroes had already emphasized. Further, the com parison which is inevitable between Dryden and his prede cessors of the great age has largely helped to bias the bowl and incline us to a rigour of judgment which other wise might not have been called down. Among the earliest and most notable critics of Dryden is Johnson,' whose political views would tend to make him lenient. Of the Conquest of Granada, the most famous, though not the.
