The speeches of Henry and his nobles The Cronicle PDFEPUB or there are many chilling references to the human cost of warThe authoritative edition of Henry V from The Folger Shakespeare Library the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers includes Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play Full explanatory notes conveniently placed o. On my initial read this was likely my least favorite of the long cycle of plays from Edward III to Richard III But with time my opinion has improved It starts and ends with a chorus and is primarily about Henry V s short violent reign his defeat of the French at Agincourt and his death I realize the Harry was a mighty warrior but his tendency to kill every man woman and child after a battle wore on me The best moment for me was when he is disguised and circulating among his troops He has become far introspective than the brash party animal he was with Falstaff by his side in Henry IV Part 1 All in all it must be said that this is a very patriotic play Framed by Chorus it plays out like a Greek tragedy for the French and ends with a mariage The opening and closing were very memorable as was the off stage death of FalstaffOf the various Shakespearean kings Henry V is probably the most idealized as a warrior Before the battle in Act 3 scene i we get the famous pep talkOnce unto the breach dear friends once Or close the wall up with our English deadIn peace there s nothing so becomes a manAs modest stillness and humilityBut when the blast of war blows in our earsThen imitate the action of the tiger Stiffen the sinews summon up the bloodDisguise fair nature with hard favour d rage Then lend the eye a terrible aspect Let pry through the portage of the headLike the brass cannon let the brow o erwhelm itAs fearfully as doth a galled rockO erhang and jutty his confounded baseSwill d with the wild and wasteful oceanNow set the teeth and stretch the nostril wideHold hard the breath and bend up every spiritTo his full height On on you noblest EnglishWhose blood is fet from fathers of war proofFathers that like so many AlexandersHave in these parts from morn till even foughtAnd sheathed their swords for lack of argumentDishonour not your mothers now attestThat those whom you call d fathers did beget youBe copy now to men of grosser bloodAnd teach them how to war And you good yeomanWhose limbs were made in England show us hereThe mettle of your pasture let us swearThat you are worth your breeding which I doubt not For there is none of you so mean and baseThat hath not noble lustre in your eyesI see you stand like greyhounds in the slipsStraining upon the start The game s afootFollow your spirit and upon this chargeCry God for Harry England and Saint George He disguises himself to walk among the soldiers and gauge the moral before the battle Here is is reflecting on his thoughts of being a king and yet still a manI think the King is but a man as I am The violet smells to him as it doth to me His ceremonies laid by in his nakedness he appears but a manHenry V Act 4 scene iHe gives another good and incredibly famous pep talk before the battle as well We few we happy few we band of brothers For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother be he ne er so vile This day shall gentle his condition And gentlemen in England now abed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin s dayHenry V Act 4 scene iiiOne thing that was particularly curious about this play was the off color humor and the jabs at the French accent The most famous part is Act 3 scene iv where Alice a servant is teaching English to Princess Katharine and they use some rude expressionsKATHARINEAinsi dis je d elbow de nick et de sin Comment appelez vous le pied et la robeALICEDe foot madame et de counKATHARINEDe foot et de coun O Seigneur Dieu ils sont les mots de son mauvais corruptible gros et impudiue et non pour les dames d honneur d user Je ne voudrais prononcer ces mots devant les seigneurs de France pour tout le monde Foh le foot et le coun N anmoins je r citerai une autre fois ma le on ensemble d hand de fingres de nails d arm d elbow de nick de sin de foot de counNote that in French slang foot is pronounced foutre and means sperm or the sexual act and coun is euivalent to cunt More details on this blog is a later section that is pretty funny which makes fun of the French accentKING HENRYI said so dear Katharine and I must not blush to affirm itKATHARINEO bon Dieu les langues des hommes sont pleines de tromperiesKING HENRYWhat says she fair one That the tongues of men are full of deceitsALICEOui dat de tongues of de mans is be full of deceits dat is de PrincessHenry V Act 5 scene iiiI found it entertaining to see that even old Will albeit early in his career was poking fun at the French accent And in retrospect it lets us see ever briefly the charming fun loving Harry in a playful mood after the brutality of the battlefieldThe Hollow Crown from 2012 2013 ended their first season with a marvelous 2h18m rendition which truly shone light on the text for me Hiddleston was an excellent Henry V and all the characters were well cast The battle scene was impressive Before moving on to Henry VI I am watching both Laurence Olivier s 1944 version as well as Kenneth Branagh s 1989 version The Laurence Olivier version had some great moments particularly playing the initial scene as an Elizabethan tongue in cheek comedy Contrasted with the serious as a heartattack version by Kenneth Branaugh which feels almost overly serious I think that the Hollow Crown in this case did the most justice and showed the most balance between the serious and farcical aspects of this play

    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
