Example text

For much of the century the play continued to be interpreted as ‘a picture of devoted, unalloyed, manly friendship, such as Shakespeare loved to paint’ – though with no hint of homoeroticism, of course (Mathias 1867: 100). Bassanio’s behaviour gives Portia ‘the full proof of the depth of her husband’s love’, since ‘a man who could act and speak as he had done could be no vulgar heiress and fortune-hunter’ (Mathias 1867: 107). There are no tensions, no ambiguities in this triangular relationship.

L. Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses 35 Perhaps a toy or two. All night across the dark we steer: But when the room returns at last, Safe in my room, beside the pier, I find my vesssel fast. For a while the child appears to exist in a sort of halfway house, poised between fantasy and reality. At the same moment, he both knows that he is really in bed and imagines that his bed is a boat, ‘Safe in my room, beside the pier’. To juxtapose such impossibilities is the prerogative of childhood and one with particular appeal to adults.

Andrew Lang, for example, said: The peculiarity of Mr Stevenson is not only to have been a fantastic child, and to retain, in maturity, that fantasy ripened into imagination: he has also kept up the habit of dramatising everything, of playing, half consciously, many parts, of making the world ‘an unsubstantial fairy place’ … Perhaps the first quality in Mr Stevenson’s works … which strikes the reader … is the survival of the child in him … It was the unextinguished childish passion for playing at things which remained with him.
