(Act.Scene.Line)
Quote #10

Thus far, with rough and all-unable pen,
Our bending author hath pursued the story,
In little room confining mighty men,
Mangling by starts the full course of their glory. (Epilogue)

In the Epilogue, the Chorus apologizes (yet again) for the author's "rough and all-unable pen," which has somehow "mangled" Henry's story. This is classic Shakespeare, who frequently apologizes to his audiences at the end of his plays. (Check out the Epilogue of A Midsummer Night's Dream for another example.)
