The most influential liberal newspaper of Dickens's day, at its height second in circulation only to The times , and which provided Dickens with his first position as a regular reporter from 1834 (shortly after its ownership changed hands and the new owners infused a good deal of money into it) to 1836 , when he resigned to assume the first editorship of Bentley's Miscellany . The rivalry between the Chronicle and The Times was intense and may have provided Dickens with the model for the battles between Pott and Slurk in The...

...experiences a revulsion of feeling, and creeps away in shame, longing for the morning which Lucrece wishes would never come (ll. 689–749). From here the poem concentrates on Lucrece’s perspective. Embarking on her lengthy, rhetorical complaint, she apostrophizes night, time, and opportunity (ll. 750–966), and curses Tarquin (ll. 967–1022), before resolving on suicide, as much for Collatine’s sake as for her own: she will tell him everything (ll. 1023–78). As morning approaches, she rebukes the sun for rising and the birds for singing, comparing herself...

Other minor details show that Shakespeare had also read the account of Guiderius in the second part of A Mirror for Magistrates ( 1578 ) and Robert Fabyan’s New Chronicle of England and of France ( 1516 ).

...may also have revised Shakespeare’s 2.1–2, much of 3.2, and all of 4.1–2. Sources: The playwrights’ principal sources for their account of the middle years of Henry’s reign—from the Field of the Cloth of Gold ( 1520 ) to the christening of Princess Elizabeth ( 1533 )—were the chronicles of Raphael Holinshed and Edward Halle . Foxe ’s Book of Martyrs ( 1563 ) supplied material for Cranmer’s scenes in Act 5, and Samuel Rowley’s earlier play on Henry’s reign, When You See Me, You Know Me ( c. 1603–5 ), may have influenced the depiction of Wolsey’s fall....

...to follow Shakespeare’s historical sources in not representing the Dauphin as a combatant at Agincourt, giving the lines he speaks there in the Folio to the Duke of Bourbon. Sources: Shakespeare again worked from the materials he had used in the Henry IV plays, namely the chronicles of Holinshed and Halle and the anonymous play The Famous Victories of Henry V . It is possible that he was also influenced by other contemporary plays on this subject, now lost. Synopsis: The Chorus speaks a prologue, lamenting the inadequacy of the theatre to so great a...
