If by your art, my dearest father, you have
Put the wild waters in this roar, allay them.
The sky, it seems, would pour down stinking pitch,
But that the sea, mounting to the welkin’s cheek,
Dashes the fire out. O, I have suffered
With those that I saw suffer: a brave vessel,
Who had, no doubt, some noble creature in her,
Dash’d all to pieces. O, the cry did knock
Against my very heart. Poor souls, they perish’d.
Had I been any god of power, I would
Have sunk the sea within the earth or ere
It should the good ship so have swallow’d and
The fraughting souls within her. [Miranda, The Tempest, I.2]
“I loved it – more from Graham please. He is a most unusual and stimulating lecturer with an exceptionally broad range of reference and refreshing fearlessness in making links”. (Member of the audience at the University Women’s Club, Mayfair)
