Another site accepts Pity and Ben Johnson, respectively, as answers. However, "Pity is not enough" was written by J. Herbst (NOT Herbert), and 27a is shown as requiring a single 9 letter answer (NOT 3,6) I do have P?T? for the former and B?N?O?S?N for the latter!

PATE, PATH, BENSOUSAN and BENVOISIN all fit, but without clues it's hard to decide which is right. The Elizabethan dramatist is BEN JONSON; BEN JOHNSON is a discredited Olympic athlete.

Sorry twice!Typing error for Ben Jonson, and for assuming you had access to the clues, as follows:-
4d.Herbert found it insufficient(4)
27a.Rare poet identified with every man(9)

Fully in place, drink served up (7,2 words)

The answer is IN PLENO (=in full) although the full wordplay escapes me !
