Alexander Andrew Knox : Heir of Cyprus, The

'You liked "St Thomas's Eve" which gave great promise - a promise which "The Heir Of Cyprus" redeems. The tory is far more artistically, & is indeed admirably managed, whilst the poetry is not less spirited and fervid. It is presumptuous, I fear, to speak thus - but I think that animated by your genius, the character of the Hero will have a very powerful effect on the stage' [letter to William Macready]

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Mary Shelley
