On John Dryden

The wonderful encapsulatory definition of drama from John Dryden at opening lecture is worth posting:
… a just & lively image of human nature, reproducing the passions & humours, & the changes of fortune to which it is subject, for the delight & instruction of mankind.
As is a brief estimation of his art and worth, on-line here. (Image with gratitude to the New World Encyclopedia.)
