    Shaw’s plays are the price we pay for Shaw’s prefaces.
    James Agate (1877–1947)

    [Allegory] should ... be very sparingly practised, lest, whilst the writer plays with his own fancies and diverts himself by cutting the air with his wide spread wings, he should soar out of view of his readers, leaving them in confusion and perplexity to explore his viewless track.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
