    On French translation and Italian song.
    Dare to have sense yourselves; assert the stage;
    Be justly warm'd with your own native rage.

But as for all the rest,

To raise the genius, and to mend the heart;
To make mankind, in conscious virtue bold,
Live o'er each scene, and be what they behold--
For this the tragic Muse first trod the stage.
