Henry V is Shakespeare’s most famous “war play”; it includes the storied English victory over the French at Agincourt Some of it glorifies war especially the choruses and Henry’s speeches urging his troops into battle But we also hear bishops conniving for war to postpone a bill that would tax the church and soldiers expecting to reap profits from the conflict Ev.

Laced on pages facing the text of the play Scene by scene plot summaries A key to the play’s famous lines and phrases An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play Fresh images from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books An annotated guide to further readi. If ever I had to have a crush on an actual English King it might have been Henry V It probably would have been in vain since he doesn t seem to have had much affection for anyone but who cares The scandalous youth vanished some time before Henry IV died and when Henry V was crowned king he showed the worldHal has become a stern but fair ruler who apparently didn t smile or only slightly and not very often and was a cunning politician who made sure England s treasury was refilled But this play is not about the whole history of Henry V Instead we begin when his fleet sets out to France You see His Majesty a term introduced by Richard II by the way wanted to grab the Turks by their beards but conuering lands in France was a pressing matter and probably cheaper too although the re opening of the Hundred Years War was costly enough Right at the beginning the play deals with an assassination attempt that actually took place Some of you might know the phrase Once unto the breach dear friends it s from this play There are uite a few battles Henry has to fight but none as remarkable as Agincourt that immortalized Henry V The English were vastly outnumbered but Henry proved to be a fantastic fighter himself but also a brilliant strategist The play also shows how the king the night before the battle at Agincourt walks amongst his soldiers to ensure their motivation according to historical records Henry V really did care about his people the soldiers as much as the noblemen and even the poor The battle is won and what does a happy victor do afterwards Right wooing a girl In this case Catherine de Valois The play funnily illustrates the difficulty of courtship even for a victorious king by playing the neither spoke the other s language card Not very realistic but it was good funSince Charles VI the then French king is uite weak it doesn t take long until Henry V is proclaimed his heir The play almost ends here were it not for a sort of epilogue foreshadowing what will happen after Henry V s death the loss of French territory and bad reign of his infant sonMore of that in my reviews about Henry VI 3 parts in total howeverThis is definitely my favourite of Shakespeare s histories so far Probably because Henry V is such a great character The real life king must have been a sight to behold An impeccable knight with wonderful manners very intelligent stern but just swoonsThis play brings out the best im him naturally and only focuses on what went right in Henry s campaign in France which was uite a lot the number of territories he conuered is staggering Too bad the end sort of diminished that but only almost As for the play itself all is well that ends well
