Description: Excerpt from Julius Caesar

Sidney! These men lived more than a town full of us who stay at home and keep the treadmill going.

The man of Elizabeth's time was a boy in body as well as in mind. Weaklings fared ill. The man among men was strong, quarrelsome, rough, often impolite and vulgar to the last degree, proud of his ability to hold his own against all odds, as ready to provoke as to resent, and as anxious to show his powers in sport with his friends as in earnest with his enemies. All the historians tell us that on the Field of the Cloth of Gold two of the greatest monarchs of the time, Henry VIII and Fran cis I, wrestled like two great boys. The incident is significant of the muscular character of the age.
