In this volume, as well as in our preceding ones on the same subject, wherever personal reference is made to William Shakspere of Stratford, the reputed dramatist, the name is so spelled, William Shakspere; but where the reference is to the author of the Plays, as such, we treat the name as a pseudonym, spelling it as it was printed on the title-pages of many of the early quartos, WILLIAM SHAKE-SPEARE. In all cases of citation, except in those where confusion would arise, we follow the originals.
