Usage examples for fitly

  1. We should choose, for example, the obvious, and boisterous fun of The Comedy of Errors, rather than the half- hidden satire of A Midsummer- Night's Dream; Julius Caesar, since it may fitly be taught as a heroic tragedy; Macbeth, which, however violent in motive and method, is still direct and simple enough to be within the child's imaginative realization. – Literature in the Elementary School by Porter Lander MacClintock
