All of Shakespeare’s plays.
We are enow yet living in the field
To smother up the English in our throngs,
If any order might be thought upon.
Is this the king we sent to for his ransom?
O seigneur! le jour est perdu, tout est perdu!
Rien puis? L'air et la feu.
O brave spirit!
The sun doth gild our armour; up, my lords!
It is now two o'clock: but, let me see, by ten
