Parallels between Shake-Speare and Bacon's Promus

Parallels between Bacon's Promus and Romeo and Juliet - continued

Part 2b

(Readers may want to print this out to more easily refer to it in later posts)
(To the right I'm citing the play the entry is paralleled with and leaving unparalleled entries intact here just for the sake of context)

Remember, these are 'seed' ideas and language parts and aren't expected to be found in the plays exactly as they are found in the Promus. None of the above entries were used in Bacon's prose works, and a few of them by their nature could only be used in plays or in Bacon's personal life. One doubts whether the bawdy puns (which will be explained later - unless they're too bawdy for this website) would have been used even in his personal life. They were better suited to the amusement of a theatre audience.

Some other Promus parallels with Roman And Juliet (besides those in Folio 112) will be included even though they may be slight or commonplace. But they are still relevant and interesting as little shreds of mental fibre which help to show that Bacon and Shake-Speare had the same brain texture.
