36-42: Borrowed Lines and Phrases

For the last 35 entries, we have posted detailed examples of Shakespearean speeches and exchanges that derive from passages originally written by North. But some prefer to just compare the borrowed lines and phrases together — one after the other –with no further explanation. They find this more compelling. So every day this week, we will post a new page that includes a list of nine or ten peculiar lines or echoes that were first written by North and then reused in the plays. We exclude here the Roman tragedies, which, as already shown, include hundreds of lines borrowed from North.
