Excerpt from The Tempest
And I may say finally, that with regard to any reproduction or identification of the scene of The Tempest, we might as well draw a map of Utopia or Atlantis; and as to any definite conception of Caliban (or indeed of Ariel), as to any attempt to reduce him to precise form or mental being, it would be as easy to erect a statue to Proteus, or even to decide whether Hamlet's cloud was most like a camel, a weasel, or a whale. Or, to state the case more generally, as metre is to rhythm, so is the real to the ideal; so also is the detail of the analyst to the poet's totality of impression.
I may add that much other additional matter will be found incorporated into this new edition footnotes).
