Johnson defend Shakespeare against the charges of violating the Dramatic Unities. In the discussion of drama in “Poetics” Aristotle mentions the three unities as the three formal requirements of a play.

These are the unities of time, place and action. The unity of time demands that the action should take place within a day.

Critics have pointed out that Dr. Johnson’s defence of tragi-comedy is not very convincing. Collins writes: “Johnson’s defence of tragi-comedy is inadequate.” “When Shakespeare’s plan is understood, most of the criticisms of Rymer and Voltaire vanish away, but an understanding of Shakespeare’s plan is not much furthered by suggestions that these plays.
