References to Cannons
Behold the ordnance on their carriages,
With fatal mouths gaping on girded Harfleur.
Suppose the ambassador from the French comes back;
Tells Harry that the king doth offer him
Katharine his daughter, and with her, to dowry,
Some petty and unprofitable dukedoms.
The offer likes not: and the nimble gunner
With linstock now the devilish cannon touches - Prologue
Yea, strike the Dauphin blind to look on us.
And tell the pleasant prince this mock of his
Hath turn'd his balls to gun-stones; and his soul
Shall stand sore charged for the wasteful vengeance
That shall fly with them: 1.2
References to Hunting and Hawking
Assume the port of Mars; and at his heels, Leash'd in like hounds, should famine, sword and fire Crouch for employment. - Prologue
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!' 3.1
When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: 3.7
King of France. You see this chase is hotly follow'd, friends.
Lewis the Dauphin. Turn head, and stop pursuit; for coward dogs Most spend their mouths when what they seem to threaten Runs far before them. 2.4
