THE SHAKESPEARE IDENTITY – CLUES (5)

Gabriel Harvey in an address to Lord Oxford, encouraging him to forsake the pen for the sword –

VULTUS TELA VIBRAT – “Your countenance shakes spears” (1572)

“In thy breast is noble blood, Courage animates thy brow, Mars lives in thy tongue, Minerva strengthens thy right hand, Bellona reigns in thy body, within thee burns the fire of Mars.

“Thine eyes flash fire, thy countenance shakes a spear; who would not swear that Achilles had come to life again?”

I have worked in international schools for the past 15 years, teaching English Literature and Theory of Knowledge in Amsterdam, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City. I'm also a musician, and a bit of a writer. Since 2001 I have come to question literally everything, the default position for an uncrippled epistemologist.
