In the prologue, Shakespeare epitomises Henry for the audience, and attempts to build a poignant love of him, which becomes a central theme as the play continues. In the prologue, Shakespeare writes “the warlike Harry, like himself / Assume the port of Mars”. This immediate, simplistic description of Henry V as warlike displays what, at the time, was wanted in a leader: powerful, warmongering and bloodthirsty. In addition to this, the casual nicknaming of Henry to Harry shows that another value in a King was that he represented the people, while also appearing god-like, demonstrated in the audience wanting to link Henry to Mars, the Roman god of war. This empowering of Henry by Shakespeare is consistent and constant in the prologue, where the Chorus asks the audience to forgive “this unworthy scaffold” for bringing “forth / So great an object.” This hyperbolic allusion towards the King once more raises the King above common people, beckoning the audience, both contemporary and of the contextual era to know the power and strength Henry held.

I was dominated, soul, brain, and power, by you. You became to me the visible incarnation of that unseen ideal whose memory haunts us artists like an exquisite dream.

Chapter nine, about halfway through the novel, is a discussion of the life of a man who closely paralleled McCandless in his passion and lifestyle. Krakauer opens the chapter with a quote from Wallace Stegner describing Everett’s passions: “What Everett Ruess was after was beauty, and he conceived beauty in pretty romantic terms. We might be inclined to laugh at the extravagance of his beauty-worship if there were not something almost magnificent in his single-minded dedication to it. Aesthetics as a parlor affectation is ludicrous and sometimes a little obscene; as a way of life it sometimes attains dignity. (61)” A second time, about midway through the book, we see Krakauer picking a quote that seeks to bring the audience over to McCandless’
That is the knowledge I appreciated most from this novel. Tale of Two Cities was on the college boards list of books because Charles Dickinson was a renowned author who is very talented at writing and making a story come to life. It also has a very intellectual historic base. Also because in order to read the book you have to have further knowledge on the French Revolution not seen in the book.
