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.


About the author: Born and raised in East Texas, Kramer Wetzel, settled in a South Austin trailer park before trailer parks were cool. He now lives in San Antonio, Texas.
