Evidence

Elizabeth Barrett to Richard Hengist Horne, 29 May 1843: "Reading Mr Halpin of the Shakespeare society upon Oberon"s command to Puck in the ""midsummer night"s dream,"" & falling into the degree of passion to which sympathy is more necessary than it is to grief itself, I turned in my thoughts to you as the person most likely of all to be in a competent passion [...] Now by the soul of Shakespeare, it ought to be a reason or blasphemy by act of Parliament for men to write such treaties & call them commentaries. They are [italics]mentaries[end italics] in the strictest sense [...] Mr Halpin gives us a ""paraphrase"" of Oberon"s ""sug"red words"", -- from which, here is an extract. """And so the imperial votaress passed on In maiden meditation, fancy-free."" "Halpin loquitur. ""And so the virgin queen departed from Kenilworth castle, unshackled by any matrimonial engagement & as heart-whole as ever .."" "I hope you dont belong to the Shakespeare society."
