Excerpt from The Spectator: A New Edition, Reproducing the Original Text, Both as First Issued and as Corrected by Its Authors; With Introduction, Notes, and Index
With that strong regard for the drama which cannot well be wanting to the man who has an artist's vivid sense of life, Steele never withdrew his good will from the players, never neglected to praise a good play, and I may add, took every fair occasion of suggest ing to the town the subtlety of Shakespeare s genius. But he now ceased to write comedies until towards the close of his life he produced with a remarkable success his other play, the Conscious Lovers. And of that, by the way, Fielding made his Parson Adams say that Cato and the Conscious Lovers were the only plays he ever heard of, fit for a Chris tian to read, 'and, I must own, in the latter there are some things almost solemn enough for a sermon.'
