“Every man’s performances, to be rightly estimated, must be compared with the state of the age in which he lived, and with his own particular opportunities […] [T]here is always a silent reference of human works to human abilities, and as the enquiry, how far man may extend his designs, or how high he may rate his native force, is of far greater dignity than in what rank we shall place any particular performance […].” Samuel Johnson, Preface to Shakespeare (1765)
