Flashcards in Tragedy Deck (6)
Dr Samuel Johnson
Gloucester's blinding scene is "one of the most painful in all English theatre"
"All that remains at the end of this gigantic pantomime is the earth, empty and bleeding"
"There is no scene which does not add to the aggravation or distress"
"A play in which the wicked prosper and the virtuous miscarry"
D. J. Enright
"The principal characters are not those who act but those who suffer"
