Excerpt from The Battaile of Agincourt

All Civilized nations possessing a history which they contemplate with pride endeavour to pre sent that history in an epic form. In their initial stages of culture the vehicles of expression are ballads like the constituents of the Spanish Romanceros and chronicles like Joinville's and Froissart's. With literary refinement comes the distinct literary purpose, and the poet appears who is also more or less of an artist. The num ber of Spanish and Portuguese national epics, from the Lusiad downwards, during the sixteenth and the first half of the seventeenth centuries, is astonishing and it was impossible that English authorship, rapidly acquiring a perception of lite rary form under classical and foreign influences, should not be powerfully affected by the example of its neighbours.
