Boycotted Shakespeare Facts free pdf Excerpt from Boycotted Shakespeare Facts: Being a Preliminary Report Upon the Admissible but Hitherto Unallowed-for Evidence Affecting the Problem of the Poet Shakespeare's Identity There is no accompanying explanation. And the nearest approach to comment, is a statement in a general summing-up note to the effect that there may be a reference to 'Venus and Adonis.' Now even if one be wholly unaware of Hall's earlier reference to Labeo as a writer of poetry in "another's name," this can be seen to be a misleading way of presenting Marston's only allusion to Labeo by such nickname. The essential facts are as follows. Marston in 1598 published a poem, 'The Metamorphosis of Pigmalion's Image, ' which was an imitation of 'Venus and Adonis': for like it the introduction mentions that the poem is an initial effort - "the first bloomes of my Poesie," like it the plot is taken from Ovid and is a story of love and metamorphosis, like it 'tis told in stanzas of six lines, like it the rhyme is a b a b c c, and like it the conclusion is about Paphos and Venus- the last two lines of Shakespeare's poem running - "Holding their course to Paphos, where their queenMeanes to immure herselfe and not be seen." And the last two lines of Marston's poem running - "Cyprus was Paphos call'd, and evermoreThose Ilanders do Venus name adore." Appended to this imitation of 'Venus and Adonis' by Marston, was a piece of verse by him entitled 'The Author in prayse of his precedent Poem.' The second and shorter of its two divisions apparently includes allusions to Hall and his recently published volumes of satires - as to our knowledge does at least the fourth of Marston's five following satires. The first and longer part censures his own precedent Poem, and concludes - "And in the end, (the end of love I wot)Pigmalion hath a jolly boy begot.So Labeo did complaine his love was stone, Obdurate, flinty, so relentlesse none: Yet Lynceus knowes that in the end of this, He wrought as strange a metamorphosis.Ends not my Poem then surpassing ill?Come, come, Augustus, crowne my laureat quill." The censure of his own poem by Marston which thus ends, and is satirically headed "prayse," is in the next two lines said to be a device to escape being "lasht" by some rival satirist - doubtless Hall - for its faults.
