Had Hamlet's father not been murdered, Hamlet's fate might not have been so tumultuous and he and Ophelia might have aligned, instead of being "star-crossed", as in Romeo and Juliet. Perhaps there are other examples in the Shakespeare canon of ill-fated lovers? There may even be a book about it? As for the grave scene, from A.P.' brilliant synopsis, the word that comes to mind is 'cinematic'. Also, Sombre. Atmospheric. Powerful.

Hi A Phoenix. Love your precis of the play! For the first time, I'm appreciating how brilliantly Bacon builds the action inexorably towards death and catharsis.

Queen Elizabeth & Her Concealed Tudor Princes

The final decade of the Elizabethan reign was dominated by the Tudor trio of Queen Elizabeth and her two concealed royal princes Francis Bacon Tudor and Robert Tudor Devereux. It was this shared secret that they were both royal heirs to the throne of England that initially bound these two concealed Tudor princes together but which in the end tore them apart and resulted in the ill-conceived Essex rebellion. An act of desperation in his reach for the throne, which involved taking possession of his mother Queen Elizabeth, with if necessary even the possibility of murdering her, in his desire to make himself King of England.

Royal Consequences

With the ageing and fading Queen Elizabeth edging towards the end of her reign the situation and frustration of their dilemma began to divide the two concealed royal princes and they began to slowly drift apart. This far into her reign the personal and political difficulties for the so-called Virgin Queen to public name and recognise her two concealed sons Francis and Robert Tudor, the fruits of her secret relationship and marriage with Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, were even if she had the will, simply enormous.

Now the above exchange between Hamlet (Francis Tudor Bacon) and Laertes (Robert Tudor Devereux) has been framed and contextualized we are now in a position to read and decipher it.

Hi A Phoenix,

Thank you so much, once again,  for sharing with us your topnoch analysis of this play !!!❤️

It takes all its meaning.

In the light of your insightful take on the play , and facing the sentence of Bacon who writes

"I have shot mine Arrow o're the house"

I immediatly thought that Bacon, the drawer, should have concealed an Arrow and a house.

Imagine my surprise discovering that in the First Folio Bacon writes " And hurt my MOTHER" !!!

Here is "And hurt my brother" in the 1611 edition of the Quarto.

I think that I found the reason of this difference !

 I found the Arrow and the house ! 😊

Good morning A Phoenix,

Right after having read your last great slides, I wondered if Bacon would have concealed a reference to Hamlet,

in his Essay : Of Revenge.

I think that it is, indeed, the case.

LET A MAN TAKE HEED !

Moreover, the words "Hurt" , "Arrow" and "Evill" are used by Bacon in this Essay.


Let my disclaiming from a purpos'd evill
Free me so far in your most generous thoughts
That I have shot my Arrow o'er the house
And hurt my Mother.

Hamlet, FIrst Folio (1623)
