More from Henry VI

More from Henry VI

From the Earl of Westmoreland:

Turning your books to graves, your ink to blood,
Your pens to lances, and your tongue divine
To a loud trumpet and a point of war?

    Shakespeare’s Henry 6 part 2 {IV.i.50–3}

T.S. Elliot quote about turning blood into ink, whereas Shakespeare — and history — turned ink to blood.

War of the Roses — it was never pretty.
