THIS play was produced under two disadvantages: first, it was not the suggestion of Shakspeare's own genius, be having exhibited the character of Falstaff in three inimitable plays, and finished the portrait to his own taste; and secondly, it was written with unusual expedition, in the short period of fourteen days. Queen Elizabet is said to have been so delighted with the Knight, that she commanded our poet to show him in love; and, up on this regal signification, Dr. Johnson remarks, that "no task is harder than that of writing to the idens of another. Shakspeare knew what the Queen, if the story be true, seems not to have known--that by any real passion of tenderness, the selfish craft, the careless jollity, and the lazy luxury of Falstaff must have sai fered so much abatement, that little of his former craft would have remained. Falstaff could not love, but by ceasing to be Falstaff." The most noted propensities of "the fat old man," are however, skilfully engranted on the design of the piece; so that wit, covetousness, mendacity, and concupiscence, are as much as possive combined and developed in his conduct. The other characters, also, are well contrasted; and many of the scenes are pregnant with amusing incident. The circumstances of the plot are variously derived: some of them, probably, from an old translation of Il Pecorone by Giovanni Fiorentino; and the particular adventures of Falstaff, from The Lovers of Pisa, a story in an ancient piece called Tarleton's News out of Purgatorie. Nalene supposes that Shakspeare chose Windsor for the scene of Falstaff love-frolics, upon reading the subjoined passage in "Westward for Smelts:" "In Windsor not long agoe, dwelt a sumpterman, who had to wit a very faire but wanton creature, over whom, not without cause, he was something jealous; yet had he never any proof of her inconstancy."
