COMEDY OF ERRORS.

LITERARY AND HISTORICAL NOTICE. THE Menochmi of Plautas (translated by an anonymous author in 1595,) furnished Shakoptare with the store

cipal incidents of this play. It is one of his earliest productions. Stevens thinks that the piece ti t* entirely of his writing. The singularity of the plot gives occasion to many amusing perplexities; but they are repeated till they become wearisome, and varied till ebey become wintelligible. Were il püssible to pro cure in the representation, two Dromios, or two Autipholus's, of whom one should be exactly the counterpart of the other, no powers of perception or of memory, would enable an audience to carry their recollecties of each individual beyond the termination of a second act. The very facility of invention with which the ** sembling individuals are made to puzzle and to thwart each other, would so confonad the senses of a spectatak, that he would soon be as much be wildered as the parties themselves; whereas the rest of the entertua de peads upon his being able accurately to retain the personal identity of eacb; without wbieb, be may be involved in the intricacy, but cannot enjoy the humour, occasioned by similarity of person, and contrariety of purpose. Mr. Stevens has justly observed, that this comedy "exhibits more intricacy of plot they distite tion of character; and that attention is not actively engaged, since every one can tell how the depeatment will be effected."
