MOLIÈRE TO SHAKSPEARE


The actor, — in the presence of the two busts of Shakspeare and Molière, and surrounded by all the artists of the « Théâtre-Français », — bows first to Shakspeare.



Shakspeare !

Shakspeare ! His noble name hovers above the two Worlds ;
In every man’s mind it lives, it speaks, — it exists,
Better than in the days when, — with his head full of profound things,
The tragic comedian called Hamlet info life.
