Excerpt from The Life of Mrs. Catherine Clive: With an Account of Her Adventures on and Off the Stage; A Round of Her Characters; Together With Her Correspondence
HE task of calling up the images of departed actors who have passed beyond the recollection of even the oldest playgoers, seems all but hopeless. With the most diligent examination of contemporary impressions the result is barren enough; for too often the reporter, supposing he have felt the inspiration, lacks the power to reproduce his impressions. It indeed needs ability of the highest order to touch this instrument and it may be said that we have but two critics who have left breathing portraits of the actors of their time, namely, Colley Cibber and Charles Lamb.
