Oratory

 

"Shakespeare" was a great orator, as witness Anthony's speech over the dead body of Caesar, which is one of the best specimens of the art ever produced.
Bacon was also a great orator, and a contemporary pronounced him to be "the eloquentist man that was ever born in this island." Ben Jonson stated :

"the fear of every man that heard him was lest he should make an end."

Is this a coincidence that "Shakespeare" and Bacon were both great orators?
