This celebrated and most attractive of all the plays of Shak speare is so often enacted, and it is so well known to the whole world, that it is scarcely necessary to say one word in reference to it, by the way of editorial introduction. At what time the great master of nature produced it, is not now known; but it is gener. Ally supposed that it was originally played in. The life-time of Shakespeare; and, there is a tradition extant, among the writings of the old players, that he himselfenacted the part of Hotspur at Globe Theatre, London, in the'year 1597. But, as it is recorded by almost all the dramatic biographical writers. From old J'ohh Dennis down to Mr. Victor. That the ghost in Hamlet, was the climax of his ambition as an actor, the report referred to, ' does not seem to be founded on probability. It is generally supposed that the first and second parts of King Henry IV. Were originally written at the same time: the one being but a continuation of the other: but, that being found too bulky for a single representation.
