The first jubilee in honour of Shakespeare, which took place at Stratford-upon-Avon, in 1769, is generally called " Garrick's." He originated and carried ont that much ridiculed-somewhat unfortunate-but, on the whole, successful and praiseworthy celebration. Garrick had been at that time no less than twenty-eight years on the stage, un- precedentedly successful as actor and manager. He was not a profound student of Shakespeare, nor had he unqualified reverence for his genius. In compliment to the greatest if not only detractor of Shakespeare in the literary world -Voltaire-he maimed " Hamlet" by cutting out the grave scene and "burking" Osric. The rapidity and intensity of his style enabled him to give a novel and spirited picture of Richard and his wonderful mimetic faculties account to me largely for the effects he created in Lear; but as a tragedian, in the strict sense of the term, he was almost as mentally dwarfed as he was physically stunted, however otherwise his biographers, the Irish dramatist and barrister, Murphy, or " the author," as Johnson said, " engendered from the corruption of a bookseller," Davies, may describe hi-m. He had not the dignity of Quin, the power of Mossop, or the physical endowments of- Barry. Certainly he was nowhere with Barry in Othello, and came up to him in only the banishment scene of Bomeo. His Hamlet, I feel persuaded, was not equal to that of Betterton or Charles Mayne Young, or hisMacbeth to that of William Charles Macready. This, I am aware, is not the traditional opinion of Garrick in tragedy, and acting will, it is true, ever be a matter of opinion, even amongst those who judge from personal knowledge, whilst it is almost impossible from descriptions in books to Books, , Shakespeare-And-Stratford-Upon-Avon-A-Chronicle-Of-The-Time~~Robert-E-Hunter, 999999999, Shakespeare and Stratford-Upon-Avon: A Chronicle of the Time (1864), Robert E.
