ISem OE 'An Essay on the Theatre' Oliver Goldsmith extract

Following is the quotation in French found in the essay 'An Essay on the Theatre' by Oliver Goldsmith

"Le comique, ennemi des soupirs et des pleurs, N'admet point dans ses vers de tragiques douleurs."

Following is the translation of the above quotation by Dr Mallika from the Dept of French, Christ University.

"The comic, enemy of sighs and tears, does not admit/allow tragic sorrow in its verses at all."

(I thank Dr Mallika for the translation and Abey from IFEP for reminding me)
