267 페이지 - And with the noble presence of Mrs. Siddons, we associated in public and in private, something absolutely awful. We were accustomed to bring her before our fancy as one habitually elevated above the sphere of familiar life, — " Attired in all the majesty of art — Crown'd with the rich traditions of a soul • That...
109 페이지 - Macbeth led us to the English theatre and English acting — to Mrs. Siddons and the Kembles, and the actual character and state of our stage. While he spoke I could not help looking at his head, which is wonderfully fine ; the noble breadth and amplitude of his brow, and his quiet, but penetrating eye, with an expression of latent humor hovering round his lips, formed altogether a striking physiognomy.
204 페이지 - That though you be more wretched, vile, and miserable than any creature living ; and, for your wickedness, become more ugly in shape than the vilest toad in the world ; and one to whom none of reputation would vouchsafe to send any message ; yet she hath thought good to send thus much to you — that she be contented you should live (and doth...
