Henry V

EPUB EBook by William Shakespeare

EBook Description

Sure, it's a jingoistic pageant, but it's a great jingoistic pageant, and—besides—it is the most melancholy,ironic, self- EPUBaware—and laugh-filled—jingoistic pageant ever staged. Henry V EPUB EBook

In Act V, Henry tells Katherine that together they will produce a son, and that this warlike paragon of chivalry will march to the Holy Land and "take the Turk by the beard."Yet we should know—and Shakespeare's audience certainly knew—that this boy would grow up to be Henry VI, the sickly, prayerful unstable man who lost England's hold on France forever and precipitated the Wars of the Roses.

This play celebrates the wheel of time and the golden warrior king who the wheel's many revolutions—in the course if the preceding ten acts of Henry IV—has produced, yet it never ceases to be conscious of the fact that success is always fleeting and that not even majesty, no matter how magnificent it may be in itself, can last forever.
