Klappentext

Excerpt from Bacon-Shakespeare Discussion: A Paper Read Before the Liverpool Philomathic Society, During the Seventy-Eighth Session

And, first, as to identity, or, rather, similarity of rhythm, thought, and expression, found in two striking extracts. One of the sublimest passages in the language is the prayer of Henry V before the battle of Agincourt. If we find anything of Bacon's even approaching this we must perforce admit anything is possible. It is in their highest ights great intellects are fairly measured and best compared, and with this, one of the greatest of the passages from the plays, I will contrast the prayer of Bacon at the close of the preface to his great Novum Organum, invoking on it the blessing of God Almighty.

K. Hen. O God of battles! Steel my soldiers' hearts; Possess them not with fear; take from them now The sense of reckoning, if the opposed numbers Pluck their hearts from them. Not to day, 0 Lord, 0, not to-day, think not upon the fault My father made in compassing the crown!
