"I revised my comedies, together with some interludes which had lain some time in a corner, and I did not think them so wretched, but that they might appeal from the muddy brain of this player, to the clearer perception of other actors less scrupulous and more judicious."
— Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de (1547-1616); Smollett, Tobias (1721-1771)
