King Henry the Sixth Part I – Act II, Scene III

Act II, Scene III

Painted by John Opie R.A.
Engraved by Robt. Thew, Historical Engraver to HRH the Prince of Wales

‘The Countess of Auvergne’s Castle. Countess, Porter, Talbot, &c.’

Tal. That will I show you presently.
[He winds a horn. Drums heard, then a peal of ordnance. The gates being forced, enter Soldiers.
How say you, Madam? are you now persuaded, / That Talbot is but shadow of himself? / These are his substance, sinews, arms, & strength, / With which he yoketh your rebellious necks; / Razeth your cities, and subverts your towns, / And in a moment makes them desolate.
