Old Men Forget


Old Men Forget

Old Men Forget is a 1953 autobiography by Duff Cooper, Viscount Norwich, detailing his Victorian childhood, Edwardian youth, and work in literature and politics.

The title is taken from a famous speech by the King in William Shakespeare's Henry V: "Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot/But he'll remember with advantages/What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,/Familiar in his mouth as household words,/Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,/Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,/Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd."
