Andrew Coyle Bradley Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Andrew Coyle Bradley from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

In speaking, for convenience, of devices and expedients,
I did not intend to imply that Shakespeare always deliberately
aimed at the effects which he produced.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Most people, even among those who know Shakespeare
well and come into real contact with his mind,
are inclined to isolate and exaggerate some one aspect of the tragic fact.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Shakespeare also introduces the supernatural into some of his tragedies;
he introduces ghosts,
and witches who have supernatural knowledge.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Nor does the idea of a moral order asserting itself
against attack or want of conformity answer in full
to our feelings regarding the tragic character.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

 

Shakespeare's idea of the tragic fact is larger than
this idea and goes beyond it;
but it includes it,
and it is worth while to observe the identity of the
two in a certain point which is often ignored.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

When Shakespeare begins his exposition thus he generally
at first makes people talk about the hero,
but keeps the hero himself for some time out of sight,
so that we await his entrance with curiosity,
and sometimes with anxiety.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

In Shakespearean tragedy the main source of the convulsion
which produces suffering and death is never good:
good contributes to this convulsion only from its tragic
implication with its opposite in one and the same character.

Shakespeare very rarely makes the least attempt to
surprise by his catastrophes.
They are felt to be inevitable, though the precise
way in which they will be brought about is not,
of course, foreseen.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

We cannot arrive at Shakespeare's whole dramatic way
of looking at the world from his tragedies alone,
as we can arrive at Milton's way of regarding things,
or at Wordsworth's or at Shelley's, by examining almost
any one of their important works.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

But, in addition, there is, all through the tragedy,
a constant alternation of rises and falls in this tension
or in the emotional pitch of the work,
a regular sequence of more exciting and less exciting sections.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

In the first place, it must be remembered that our
point of view in examining the construction of a play
will not always coincide with that which we occupy
in thinking of its whole dramatic effect.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

King Lear alone among these plays has a distinct double action.
Besides this, it is impossible, I think,
from the point of view of construction,
to regard the hero as the leading figure.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Job was the greatest of all the children of the east,
and his afflictions were well-nigh more than he could bear;
but even if we imagined them wearing him to death,
that would not make his story tragic.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Both Brutus and Hamlet are highly intellectual by nature and reflective by habit.
Both may even be called, in a popular sense,
philosophic; Brutus may be called so in a stricter sense.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

A Shakespearean tragedy as so far considered may be
called a story of exceptional calamity leading to the
death of a man in high estate.
But it is clearly much more than this,
and we have now to regard it from another side.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

We might not object to the statement that Lear deserved to suffer for his folly,
selfishness and tyranny; but to assert that he deserved
to suffer what he did suffer is to do violence not
merely to language but to any healthy moral sense.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

In approaching our subject it will be best,
without attempting to shorten the path by referring
to famous theories of the drama,
to start directly from the facts, and to collect from
them gradually an idea of Shakespearean Tragedy.
- Andrew Coyle Bradley

Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth.
- Publius Cornelius Tacitus

I advocate speaking words of love

on their children rather than virtue,
the art of speaking well rather than doing well;
but their manners should be of the greatest concern.
- R. Buckminster Fuller

Looking at a sunset, just for a second
you forget your separateness:
you are the sunset.
That is the moment when you feel the beauty of it.

enclosed entity of the ego.
Now the mind is speaking.
- Osho

"I realized I was looking at you,
in your visit, through old glasses.
Speaking old words.
Telling old stories.

physical changes and I need to give my spirit time to catch up."
Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
