Love this passage.


Upon the sudden discovery of the death of the young heir to England, Salisbury speaks to The Bastard, who has protested the innocence of the King in this foul deed:


Sir Richard, what think you? have you beheld,
Or have you read or heard? or could you think?
Or do you almost think, although you see,
That you do see? could thought, without this object,
Form such another? This is the very top,
The height, the crest, or crest unto the crest,
Of murder’s arms: this is the bloodiest shame,
The wildest savagery, the vilest stroke,
That ever wall-eyed wrath or staring rage
Presented to the tears of soft remorse.

Harvey, 1950
