Book of Answers: Shakespeare

“What Shakespeare character says ‘The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers’? Dick the Butcher says it in Henry the Sixth, Part 2 (c. 1590), act 4, scene 2, line 84. His proposal is made in support of Jack Cade’s plans for a revolution in England.”

Excerpted from: Corey, Melinda, and George Ochoa. Literature: The New York Public Library Book of Answers. New York: Simon and Schuster, 1993.
