An unsupported, isolated, offhand remark in the preface to a book about
Rome.

I don't see it, myself. “Harry in the night” alone seems to me to have
more than all the Roman plays together, and Shakespeare knows nothing of
the terrible ironies surrounding the assassination of Caesar (partly, of
course, because he generally accepts monarchism as the natural order of
things).
