Titles from HENRY V


Anonymous: The Battle of Agincourt

O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
The brightest heaven of invention,
A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
And monarchs to behold the swelling scene!
. . . or may we cram
Within this wooden O the very casques
That did affright the air at Agincourt? (Prologue)

    Henry's horse
  • Once more into the breach, dear friends, once
    Or close the wall up with our English dead!
    In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
    As modest stillness and humility;
    But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
    Then imitate the action of the tiger;
    Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
    Disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage;
    Then lend the eye a terrible aspect. (III,i)
